Marco Stiepermann: It's time to start the next run

30 October 2017

Marco Stiepermann says Norwich City must put the weekend behind them and look to start a new run when they host high-flying Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday (7:45pm).

The Canaries suffered their first league defeat since August against Derby County on Saturday, ending an impressive string of form which had seen them climb the Sky Bet Championship table.

"We were disappointed but we can be proud of the run and now we can start a new one," Stiepermann told the media at Monday's press conference.

"It's an important game for us against one of the best teams in the league. We want to win each and every home game.

"Our fans are amazing, you look at the 8,000 we had at Arsenal and it was unbelievable. To play every four days is everything you want; in Germany we call weeks like that 'English weeks'. 

"It's not important who we play, we just want to win. Our style of football wasn't easy at the beginning of the season but we're doing better and better every game."

The bulk of Stiepermann's appearances in yellow and green so far have come in the left-back position, something which the 26-year-old admits is new to him.

"It's my first time playing full-back and I like it," the former Bochum player added.

"Normally I'm an offensive player and I feel like I was born to score goals. I started as a striker and played often in midfield, but the coach wanted to try something.

"I like it. I have to improve my defence because it's a new position for me. When you look at the last nine games, we've conceded few goals.

"That's been our main strength but now we have to score more. We create enough chances but we have to take them, like with my situations [against Derby].

"In this league, the team who scores first mostly wins. When we score first, we win."
