Striker nets against former side in City victory

CAMERON Jerome says Norwich City must find a way to take their steadily improving Carrow Road form onto their travels after a 2-0 victory over Birmingham City at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The Canaries made it successive wins by seeing off Gianfranco Zola's side, meaning they have now collected 15 points from a possible 18 on home turf across their last six league outings.

"It's pleasing to get back-to-back victories," the frontman told Norwich City TV after the match.

"Our form has been a bit iffy this year and we've got build on the last couple of performances now. We've got two tricky away games coming up, where our form has been indifferent.

"If we can address that and play with the same intensity, grit and determination then our quality will come through in the end. We've got a way to go before we can say we've turned the corner but things are getting better.

"Keeping a clean sheet is obviously a positive and we're creating chances like we were earlier on in the season. Slowly but surely we're getting there."

It was Jerome's goal which gave City a 15th minute lead, capitalising in the ultimate fashion upon Birmingham's Lukas Jutkiewicz striking the crossbar barely seconds earlier.

Timm Klose rose to head a second from Robbie Brady's free-kick with the interval looming, and Jerome added: "That's football, it's end-to-end in this division.

"You can be punished at times for not taking your chances and we scored our goals at crucial moments. Both of them came at crucial times in the game.

"It was important to get three points for the team, first and foremost. Obviously, I also wanted to put in a performance which helps my cause for the next couple of games.

"The manager has a nice dilemma now, so it's a good headache for him to have."
