Midfielder on verge of milestone appearance

ALEX Tettey is determined for a potential 150th Norwich City appearance to be associated with happy memories when his team take on Fulham at Carrow Road on Good Friday (3pm).

The Norway midfielder will reach the milestone if included to face The Cottagers, having become an established figure at the Club since signing from Rennes in the summer of 2012.

Speaking to the media on Thursday afternoon, the 31-year-old said: "I've been told if I play it will be 150 so that's something to look forward to.

"I don't want to play my 150th game, then look at the history books and see we lost. I'm up for it.

"There are some great memories in there for me. Obviously there is Wembley and Old Trafford, but my first game for Norwich in the Premier League was special. 

"For me it's the same as when I reached 100, it's something I'm very proud of. If I play it will be something I'll be happy about because life in Norfolk has been brilliant and I'm very pleased with that."

Alan Irvine's side go into the match in confident mood, having ruthlessly dispatched Reading 7-1 in their previous outing last weekend.

"It was a nice game where everything we tried went in," Tettey added.

"We hadn't won against any of the top ten teams so it was good to do that with quality goals. We're good at home, so were confident going into that game. 

"Fulham are a very good side and tomorrow won't be like that. We've had a meeting about their forward players and they're a threat so we need to be on our toes.

"Training has been good and we need to keep going."
