Press Conference

Daniel Farke: We are flexible and in good shape

5 March 2018

Daniel Farke says his Norwich City side will show respect to Nottingham Forest but believes his team has what it takes to get a much-needed victory at Carrow Road.

City have drawn their last two matches at home against Ipswich Town and Bolton Wanderers, despite dominating for large periods, but Farke is confident his team will deliver the goods on Tuesday night.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Farke said: “We have to be really respectful for this game but we know we are in a good shape. We want to go further on.

“We are flexible right now and we are able to switch formations because the lads are comfortable.

“We have many options and the opponent doesn’t know if we will come with a three-man or four-man formation.

“We are unbeaten since January and have put in some good performances. Hopefully we can reward ourselves with a win.”

City haven’t played for ten days after their visit to Barnsley at the weekend was postponed but Farke said the extended break will not give his team any significant boost.

“It could be an advantage or it could be a disadvantage,” he added. “It’s not so easy when you don’t play and stay in your rhythm.

“In general, Nottingham [Forest] had some load in the last week so that could be an advantage as well. So overall, I don’t think it’s too important.

“In the last four games, they are unbeaten with eight points after a really strange period for them when they were concerned and were involved in the relegation battle.

“But these eight points has helped them and they will come here in a better mood.

“They can play this game without any pressure and they have a really experienced coach in Aitor Karanka. It seems like it fits right now.”
