Academy graduate looking to 'spoil the party' at Elland Road

NORWICH City winger Josh Murphy says the Club's fans deserve a strong finish to a difficult Sky Bet Championship season ahead of the penultimate game of the campaign at Leeds United on Saturday (3pm).

Alan Irvine's men head to Elland Road with the play-off places already out of reach, although back-to-back wins against Preston and Brighton offers hope of improved fortunes next term.

"We've played well the last couple of weeks so now we want to end the season on a high," Murphy exclusively told on Friday morning.

"We're playing for the future, for next year, and the boys have shown up well lately. Now it's about giving the fans something to shout about after a disappointing season.

"Leeds are looking to stay in the play-offs so it's going to be a tough game. We've shown when we're at it we can take on any team however so hopefully we can go there and put on a show.

"We spoiled Brighton's party last Friday and now it's about spoiling theirs. We know we should be in their position; it's not nice that we're not and there's no question we can go there and get a result."

Murphy himself has featured in some form in each of City's last five matches, and is determined to maintain his personal standards right through to the summer.

"I'm focused on the Leeds game and continuing the run of form I've been in," the 22-year-old explained.

"It's all about preparing for next season. Hopefully it will be a good one where I get a lot of minutes and contribute to us pushing for promotion with goals and assists.

"This season has been frustrating, I think that's the same for everyone in the team. You're going to have your ups and downs but now I want to kick on towards next year.

"We want to get cohesion in the team and that's what we'll be aiming for."
