Josh Murphy: Patience is vital

7 September 2017

Josh Murphy believes patience is vital for Norwich City as they aim to bounce back to winning ways this weekend.

City are looking to add to their solitary league win over QPR when they take on Birmingham City at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Murphy says City have been let down by individual errors in the early part of the season but thinks the team aren’t far away from clicking into gear.

“Like all good things, it won’t happen overnight. It’s a work in progress,” he said. “Despite the results, obviously it’s a results-based business, but if you break it down and look at how we’ve played, we’ve done well.

“It’s just individual errors which have cost us and that makes things look a lot worse. We feel like we’ve played good football so far this year but we just need to tweak a couple of areas in our game and then we’ll be completely fine.

“There’s no way this team should not be up there this year because we all feel that we are capable of that. The fans have got to stick with us.

“I saw that they were excited about the change and they need to buy into it. It’s not going to happen after a couple of weeks, it’s going to take a few months and once it clicks, I think we’ll be a force to be reckoned with.”

However, Murphy has been particularly pleased with his individual displays so far having scored three times in seven matches.

“I’m just happy that I’m playing because as I’ve always said when I’m on the pitch I’m capable of changing the game and getting some goals and assists to help the team.

“It’s just about finding that consistency now where I can just score the goals, help the team out and do my defensive job.”
