Daniel Farke has set his Norwich City side the task of ending September unbeaten with a positive result at Reading on Saturday.
City have won four and drawn two of their six matches this month and they can extend their unbeaten run at the Madejski Stadium (5.30pm kick-off).
“It’s the last game before the international break so we want to go into that with a win,” said Farke, speaking at his pre-match press conference.
“It will be a big task but a good challenge for us. We want a perfect finish to this month. We know we can get points wherever we go.
“Reading are struggling right now and not full of confidence but on the other hand, in terms of potential, they are one of the best teams in the league.
“I like their philosophy, they like to keep possession and they have many quality players. They signed [Sone] Aluko for a lot of money so they have high individual quality.
“If they are focused and are able to bring their best, they will be very tough to beat. It’s one of the toughest places to go.”
The match will see Farke go up against Jaap Stam who, like the Canaries boss, is in his first role in charge of a first team setup.
And Farke is full of praise for his counterpart, saying: “Jaap Stam is a very experienced coach and he was a great player. I expect them to be in a much better position at the end of the season.
“We know we will be facing a really good opponent. We will have to do without many important players on Saturday but we’ve showed that we can do well.”
