Daniel Farke says his Norwich City side is eager to build on their win over Aston Villa at the weekend in their trip to Sunderland on Tuesday (7.45pm).
City have only won back-to-back league games twice this season and Farke says his players are very keen to match those Villa-performance levels on Wearside.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, the City boss said: “When you play at the level like we did on Saturday, you are greedy to repeat this and have another good performance and result.
“It’s important to be pretty respectful because we face a club who is in a really difficult situation.
“In this moment, it’s also a sign of our respect that we won’t go there in a celebrating, party mood after a brilliant game against Aston Villa. It’s important to be professional and disciplined."
Sunderland are currently second from bottom and seven points from safety in the Sky Bet Championship and Farke believes the Black Cats will do all they can to take all three points in their battle to stay in the division.
“We know that in the last weeks of the season, we have to face an opponent who is struggling against relegation and that is a pretty tough task.
"They will be full of aggressiveness and highly-motivated. They have to win this game and they need this success for the club.
"In their last game against Leeds, they were much the better side and deserved to win the game. It’s not an easy place to go.
"That’s the sign that their heads aren’t in League One already. I’m pretty sure they will fight for their lives. It will be a game of high intensity.
"The supporters will be there and will support them. Although there could be some advantages [for us]. They could be a bit nervous as well and could be over-motivated.
"We have to be really awake to use these moments to be successful."
