Marco Stiepermann: The feeling is unbelievable

8 December 2018

Marco Stiepermann is “happy for the fans” after his goal helped Norwich City overcome Bolton Wanderers at Carrow Road.

Stiepermann said: “That’s why you play football, I’m happy for the fans because it’s been really exciting for them when you watch back the last three home games.

“It was a little bit like the Millwall game today. How we can win the game after the late equaliser again today, the feeling is just unbelievable.”

City’s opponents were 23rd in the Championship, but made it difficult for the Canaries and Stiepermann wasn’t surprised the Trotters made it tough for his side.

“This is the Championship; every team can beat every team so each game is a tough match, we know how hard it is to play against teams from the bottom.”

Despite a dramatic end once again at Carrow Road, the German midfielder thought the home side more than deserved to take all three points.

“It was an interesting game against a good team but I think we had a lot more possession, more chances so it was a fully deserved win today.

“Maybe in the last 20 minutes we were too comfortable on the ball and against the ball, but I’m just happy to win the game.”

Stiepermann believes Timm Klose’s injury before the game disrupted the team at the start, but praised Ben Godfrey after making his first league start of the season.

“Timm [Klose] is one of our most important players in the team; he has a lot of experience and helps the younger lads especially.

“But big compliments to Ben Godfrey, he didn’t now he was going to start 10 minutes before the game he just knew that he was playing."
