Defender looks ahead to last four cup clash at Reading

NORWICH City's Under-23s will relish Sunday's Premier League Cup semi-final at Reading's Madejski Stadium, according to defender Louis Ramsay.

The Canaries' Development squad have excelled in cup competitions this term, their most recent outing of such kind taking them into this tournament's final four with a fine win away to Liverpool.

Reflecting on what his side took from that tie, Ramsay told "We got a massive buzz from beating them in the last round so we're going into the game with a lot of confidence.

"The boys can't wait to get onto the pitch and put in a performance. It's been a good season for us, one that's more realistic to the first team schedule as they have a lot of games.

"Last season we probably played about half as many games as we have this year. The boys have coped really well with that and we've kept our standards up, really coming on as a team after Christmas.

"We've been doing the business all year and now we want to end the season on a high."

Ramsay believes City will be spurred on by the emotions felt following a harsh 1-0 reverse to Sunderland in the Premier League International Cup semi-final last month, with a collective determination to go further this time around.

"Against Sunderland we felt we played really well but on the night it wasn't enough," the 19-year-old explained.

"We don't want the same feeling as we had after that game. We want to win this one because one of our aims for this season was to get into a final.

"For myself personally, I've been doing work with the physio this week to get ready for Sunday. I just had a few minor niggles here and there so was rested on Monday [against Brighton] but I'm feeling good now.

"We just need to play our own game. When we've done that this season we've won a lot of games so we need to put in a good team performance with good individual performances on top of that."
