Daniel Farke: We need to come out on top in all areas

31 August 2018

Daniel Farke believes it's important that his Norwich City side come out on top in "many different topics" if they are to extend their unbeaten run in the East Anglian derby.

City visit Portman Road to take on Ipswich Town this Sunday (12pm) and Farke says his team need to be on top form to prevail.

"All topics come together in a derby," said the City boss. "You need good attitude, shape and to win the duels.

"Ipswich play with a lot of movement. It's important we bring our strengths on the pitch. In many games this season, we've been able to score many goal and create many chances.

"We want to win some points in this game. The pressure is always a bit more on the home team as a derby. In a derby, there is no favourite. Anything can happen and perhaps the pressure is on the home team.

"It's good to have such a record but I don't think it plays such a role on Sunday. A win in 2008 was from a completely different squad so we can't take confidence from that.

"It's about who is the better team on Sunday. We want to be there with a good performance and a really good result."

Farke also believes it's important for his team to remain calm in the hostile derby atmopshere.

"It's important that I calm the players down and give them confidence. It's also important that we go further on with our normal processes.

"It's a big game but in order to be successful you have to do what you know. That's what we've been trying to do during this week."
