James Maddison dedicates win to City supporters

9 December 2017

James Maddison dedicated Norwich City’s 3-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday to the supporters, saying: “That one was for them”.

City had not won in their last seven league games but a sensational second half turnaround from Daniel Farke’s men brought a vital three points at Carrow Road.

Speaking to the media post-match, Maddison said: “When you’re on a run like that, you just can’t see a win coming.

“It’s been a long time coming and especially to get it at home for our fans, for us and the club, it will give us a lift now. Hopefully we can kick on.

“It was case of relaxing a little bit [at half-time]. It’s easy to go 1-0 down and just fold but we came back out and everyone was fired up.

“They [the supporters] deserve that. We haven’t been good enough at home and we’re the first ones to hold our hands up.

“We know that. We all want the same goal here and we’re all trying to achieve the same goal. That one was for them.”

Maddison believes City’s hard work in the second half was vital in earning all three points.

“Nelson [Oliveira] got an early header on goal and that just lifted the crowd a little bit and it lifted us,” he added.

“We got an early go and just moved on from there. It was a great, top Championship performance from us today.

“It [the second half] was one of [the best 45 minutes this season], definitely. The run that we went on with a quite a few wins - that springs to mind, but it’s definitely up there.

“Just the way we worked, the way we pressed and the way we got in their faces, even though we were a goal down - we pushed and grinded out the three points today. It was well-deserved.”
