Daniel Farke: The start of a crucial period

17 November 2017

Saturday's visit of Barnsley to Carrow Road marks the start of a 'crucial' part of the Sky Bet Championship season, according to Norwich City Head Coach Daniel Farke.

With his side having now played 16 of their 46 league games, Farke's men sit in midtable ahead of a continuous run of fixtures up until Christmas.

Speaking to the media on Friday, the 41-year-old said: "This period of the season is where the table will be made.

"It's about winning points and getting a rhythm. The season is a marathon and we want to start a new run without a loss.

"We are four points off the play-off positions. We feel we could have more points but the first third of the season is done.

"We have a good base but want to go further on from this point."

Farke believes the Canaries have benefited from the latest international break, having lost three consecutive league matches going into it.

"It's always nice to have some time to calm down and recreate," he explained.

"I'm in a good mood when I've had time to work on the training pitch with the guys.  We have worked on several topics we need to improve upon over the past two weeks.

"We are 100 per cent not content with our home results. We haven't scored enough goals and are looking to improve that.

"That's our most important topic at the moment. We have to be more precise in the final-third.

"Football will always be the same but as a coach there are topics you can improve. Hopefully we'll see that on the pitch."
