Full-back looking for side to kick on from Wolves victory

NORWICH City must focus on what they're capable of when they host Birmingham City in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday (3pm), according to defender Ivo Pinto.

Having missed out through injury in the reverse meeting between the side's back in September which Blues emerged as 3-0 victors at St. Andrew's, Pinto is expecting a different contest this time around.

"Birmingham have a good team but it's about us," the 27-year-old told the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday afternoon.

"If we do our jobs, like we did in the last game, we've got everything we need to win the game. We want to build [from Wolves] and everyone is looking forward to it.

"We've not been as consistent as we should be. At the moment the most important thing is to worry about ourselves winning games.

"If we win our battles, with the quality we've got, it will help us."

A year on since first linking up with the Canaries, the former Dinamo Zagreb man has taken the events of the past 12 months in his side and is now targeting an improvement in recent fortunes on the pitch.

"It was my birthday when I officially signed, which was a very special day for me," he added.

"It's been up and down but this is the best country to play football in. Norwich is a good club to play at because it's a family that's looking to get back to the Premier League.

"The facilities and conditions here are everything you need to evolve as a player. We all want to make the club bigger and better.

"We need to work every week to get closer to our objective."
