Daniel Farke: I'm confident in our creativity

13 October 2017

Daniel Farke admits the absence of players isn't ideal but he has full confidence in his squad’s ability to create chances and score goals.

City will be without a number of key players for the visit of Hull City this weekend but they go into the match with momentum after going through September unbeaten.

Speaking at Friday’s pre-match press conference, Farke said: “Personnel problems especially in our offensive area are not ideal but it’s quite normal. It will be important that we go on with our good defensive behaviour in order not to concede too many goals.

“When you have to do without so many offensive players, it’s not as easy to create so many chances.

“When Nelson [Oliveira], [Alex] Pritchard, Steven Naismith, Josh Murphy, Marley Watkins and Marco Stiepermann are all in good shape, that would help us.

“We have to do without them tomorrow and we have to find some solutions. I’m confident in my guys that we are able to create chances to score goals."

Farke was full of praise for Saturday’s visitors and said it will be a hard test for his in-form Canaries.

“Hull are a really good team and they have high individual quality,” he continued. “They were in the Premier League last year and have quality players like [Jarrod] Bowen, [Seb] Larsson, [Kamil] Grosicki and many more.

“It will be a hard game but we will be there in good shape and in a good mood. In personal terms, it’s perhaps not the perfect situation but it is what it is and hopefully we can win some points tomorrow.”
