Adam Idah: Home crowd gives us the edge

26 February 2018

Adam Idah says Norwich City's Under-18s are feeling in confident mood ahead of Tuesday's FA Youth Cup quarter-final meeting with Birmingham City (7pm).

The Canaries have seen off Barnsley, Derby County and Newcastle United so far in the tournament, leaving them one more win away from a place in the last four.

"There's been a good vibe in training and everyone in the group is feeling positive," the striker told Norwich City TV.

"Birmingham are a good team, but we're capable of beating them. If we play well, we've got a real chance in the game.

"In the three games we've played so far, we've had poor starts before everyone upped it in the second half."

Idah says playing in familar surroundings has been of huge benefit to David Wright's side this year, with  City fortunate enough to have been handed home draws throughout the competition so far.

"Playing at Carrow Road makes a big difference," the Ireland youth international explained.

"With the home crowd, there's a good vibe around the place. We've felt that when we've gone into extra-time and you need that edge.

"You could see against Derby in particular, the support helped carry us on when we were struggling. We'd love fans to come out and support us as much as they can."

Tickets for the game are priced at £3, with full details available HERE.
