U21s PREVIEW: HALAJKO ON READING

20 March 2016

Free entry at Carrow Road on Monday evening!

DMITRI Halajko wants Norwich City's Under-21s to pick up from where they left on when they host Reading at Carrow Road on Monday night (7pm), with tickets FREE to supporters.

The young Canaries produced an impressive display which earned a deserved 2-1 win at Tottenham's White Hart Lane last time out, with Jamal Lewis and Ray Grant on target.

"We really played well from start to finish and dominated the game," Halajko told canaries.co.uk ahead of the Barclays Under-21s Premier League meeting.

"In the end 2-1 probably flattered them as it was one of our best performances of the year. It was good for the boys to get the reward for their hard work.

"We were happy with the game and it now takes us into Reading in good shape. They have a strong team with plenty of experience, and have one of the league's top scorers.

"It's going to be a tough test for us but we always enjoy the occasion of a Carrow Road match."

City's Development Squad have been well-backed at their home ground across the current campaign, something which Halajko believes has a significant effect on his side.

"This will be our penultimate home game so the fans turning up as they always have done is really big for us," he explained.

"They help to push the boys and make them go that little bit further. It adds a competitive edge to fixtures and makes our team feel like they've got backing.

"When they have that, they feel able to do even more than they would normally be able to. We're looking to play our normal style of football right from the off in order to get a positive result."

Tickets for the game are FREE for all supporters, with further information available HERE.

We will be joining the team on Monday night to provide coverage across our digital channels, with video highlights to follow on Norwich City TV.
