Jordan Rhodes keen for City to bounce-back against Preston

18 August 2018

City striker Jordan Rhodes said the team is ready to bounce-back and get their first win as they prepare for a midweek home match against Preston North End.

The Canaries suffered a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in their second away game of the season today, with a late goal in extra time by Billy Sharp denying City a point.

But Rhodes said the team is working well together and will keep pushing to get their first win.

“Today is a sore one to take but there’s plenty more games to play and we will dust ourselves down and concentrate a collective effort to work as hard as we  can for Wednesday’s game against Preston,” he said.

“The fans were terrific last Saturday so we want to put things right from that West Brom game and I personally want to because I felt that I let a few people down last week.

“If selected I’ll be trying my best, as everyone will, to bounce-back and get that first win because as soon as we get that win it will kick-start the season.”

Rhodes scored his second goal for the Canaries in the first half of the match to cancel out an early goal for Sheffield United in the ninth minute.

“It is nice to score goals, it would have been even better on a personal front had it amounted to a point or three points so it’s just frustrating that we didn’t get something from the game today,” he said.

“Everyone worked really hard and for it to be a last minute goal it’s tough to take because you’ve not got much time to reflect and bounce back from it.

“I thought we played really well in places and it was a really good away performance. We created some good chances towards the end.

“Our fitness levels are good and I thought a point was at least what we deserved.”

Norwich City take on Preston on Wednesday at Carrow Road at 7.45pm.
