Daniel Farke: We want more of the same

29 December 2017

Daniel Farke says his side must build on their Boxing Day victory at Birmingham City when they travel to Burton Albion on Saturday (3pm).

The Canaries collected a vital win over struggling Blues, with goals from Alex Pritchard and Josh Murphy in either half guiding them to a deserved triumph.

"It's a nice feeling after a win and you're looking forward to the next game," Farke told the media on Friday afternoon.

"We travelled back in a good mood and want that feeling again. It will be a similar task to Birmingham, because they are in a relegation battle.

"The pressure is on them to win points. We go there being really respectful. It will be a hard game as they don't get nervous in tough periods.

"In the home game against them, we had just four or five chances and didn't take them. That's our topic. We have to be clinical."

Having seen his side put in a controlling display at St. Andrew's, Farke admits a need to juggle a desire for continuity with the reality of a grind brought about by a hectic run of matches over the festive period.

"There's no reason to change after the Birmingham performance, but with so many games, it's tricky," the Head Coach added.

"It wouldn't be smart to play the same team in every game. We have many options right now and that helps. 

"Although you are tempted to go on without changes after a success, we have to rotate. We won't risk injuries to important players. We have to find the balance. 

"It's good for a team when aren't too many changes but in this period I have to be smart with my choices. There is a lot of load at the moment. It's the busiest period of the season."
