Angus Gunn: I know what this game means

21 October 2017

Of all Norwich City's players, few have a greater natural understanding of the East Anglian derby than goalkeeper Angus Gunn.

The 21-year-old was born and raised in Norwich, and was part of the club's Academy until making a switch to Manchester City in 2011.

Returning to Carrow Road on loan this summer, the self-confessed City fan is relishing the prospect of a first-hand involvement in such a high-profile game this weekend.

"I've been to quite a few derbies in my time," Gunn told

"There have been some good and some bad ones, but hopefully we can make Sunday a good one. The week leading up is always a big thing.

"We've spoken about it in the dressing room and everyone is looking forward to the game. All the lads can see what it's about so we're just eager to get onto the pitch now."

Gunn can call on familial experience of the clash, father Bryan having donned the gloves for City in numerous clashes with their biggest rivals.

"He's said a few things which can't be repeated!", Angus added with a grin. 

"Hopefully we can come out on the right side, then we'll all be happy. Our away form has been good so that gives us great confidence going into the match.

"The fans will be getting more excited the closer we get to the game. It will be the same with us too.

"We're aware of how the atmosphere will be, but, just like any other game, we want to win it. We're looking to go there and take the three points."
