Better starts in games will lead to more success for Norwich City’s Under-23s, according to striker Tristan Abrahams.
City trailed 3-0 after 36 minutes of their Premier League Cup fixture away to Wolverhampton Wanderers but rallied back with real character and determination to draw the match.
“It’s definitely been the story of our season,” said Abrahams. “It’s a good feeling to come back from behind but I think we’ve got to start games better. If we start better then we’ll start winning more games.
“The spirit in this team is unreal. Obviously there is a real disappointment sometimes because we know we shouldn’t be going behind from silly goals and our own mistakes. But we have a lot of big characters in the dressing room and we are very together.”
Abrahams scored City’s second with 89 minutes on the clock for his fourth goal of the season and the forward, signed from Leyton Orient in the summer, says he’s improving every week.
“It was good to get another goal,” he added. “I should have had a few more goals this season but there’s a lot of the season to go. I’m always happy to help out the team with goals and assists.
“I’m really enjoying it. [Matt] Gilly is a very understanding coach and he knows my weak points and what I need to work on. He also helps me work on my strengths.
“We have a lot of good players here and I do feel like I am improving every training session and every day with them as a character and on the pitch as well.
“The likes of Todd [Cantwell], Adam [Phillips], Dev [Aransibia] and so many more – we have a lot of creative players in the team. They are always going to create chances for me.”
