Striker calls for response against Leeds

NORWICH City are ready to start again when they resume their Sky Bet Championship campaign at home to Leeds United on Saturday (3pm), according to Cameron Jerome.

The Canaries endured a torrid time of things last time out, sliding to a emphatic 5-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion less then seven days ago.

Speaking to the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday, Jerome said: "We've had a discussion and put the game to bed now so we can focus on Saturday and trying to get a positive result.

"It's never nice losing any game of football. Everyone was gutted to lose to a promotion rival in that manner. The performance wasn't good enough and we fully accept that.

"After the game the manager did a debrief and asked us for our thoughts on it, as he always does. From there, it's done, like every game is - win or lose.

"We've had a full week of training. That's given us a spring in our step and we're ready to go again."

The frontman also emphasised a need for collective calm, amid the fallout of such a heavy defeat.

"It's not alarm bells and panic stations all of a sudden, he added.

"Judge us where we are in May, not now. We're more than capable of putting a run together, it's just about rolling your sleeves up and having that hunger and desire.

"If you don't have that as a team collectively, you'll come up short. We're well aware of the task ahead because the Championship is vigorous; it's a marathon, not a sprint.

"It's about where we are in May. We're just focusing on picking up points as soon as possible."
