Christoph Zimmermann: We will sort out our problems

24 November 2017

Christoph Zimmermann is adamant he and his Norwich City teammates can turn their form around.

City are winless in their last five Sky Bet Championship fixtures but the tall centre-back believes that previous experiences show that the team is capable of solving their current problems.

"At the beginning of the season, we had big problems defending," admitted Zimmermann. "But then we had a run of clean sheets.

"We conceded agaist Derby, Bolton and Wolves recently but our defending was much better.

"I'm not concerned about not scoring too many goals. It's no secret that we've struggled to score but I'm content that we can sort it."

After featuring heavily during the early part of the season, Zimmermann has started the last two games as a substitute.

However, he believes this shows the strength in depth City have at the back.

"Of course always happy when I start," he added. "On Tuesday when Timm [Klose] went off, I came on. It was good to have some minutes and it's always better to have some minutes before you start.

"We have a lot of good centre backs. Of course sometimes you play more, sometimes less. Its not a big deal because, as I said, we have lots of good players. It's normal and you have to accept it.

Zimmermann also hopes City can give the home support reason to cheer against Preston North End on Saturday.

"If we play better, the fans will have a lot to cheer about. I remember the equaliser against Hull, the atmosphere was great. Everybody will be happier if we play better. It's up to us to give the fans something to cheer about."
