Daniel Farke: We need to focus and concentrate

26 November 2018

Daniel Farke said his players need to “stay greedy and hungry in order to score goals” as City look to carry on their winning run.

The Canaries have scored four goals in their last three Sky Bet Championship games, and will be looking to pick up another three points in Tuesday’s away match against Hull City.

Farke said: “We like to be pretty strong in our offense, so in three consecutive games to score four goals is outstanding.

“We were speaking a lot last season about how hard we had to work to score goals and at the moment we are scoring a lot, I think the second most goals in the league.

“When you are able to score so many tap-in goals it’s a sign of some quality work in the build-up and the possession, and I would like it if we can go on like this.”

Goals were the main talking point last time City played Hull away, with Norwich losing despite James Maddison scoring a hat-trick. And the City boss believes Tuesday's game will be just as tough.

“We have to keep in mind that just 18 months ago they [Hull City] were playing in the Premier League and they started as one of the big favourites for the title last season,” said Farke.

“They have many threats in the offense, [Kamil] Grosicki is a really good player, a few years ago half of Europe were chasing him, [Jarrod] Bowen is a good player as well.

“When you watch their last two games, they conceded five goals overall against Birmingham and Nottingham, although a draw against Birmingham is not a bad result.

“In the six games before they were either keeping a clean sheet or conceding just the one goal and they beat West Brom 1-0, so it’s a tough place to go.”

Farke said he wants his players to be fully focused on the challenge ahead, and take each game as it comes.

“We want to take it game by game, we need to focus and concentrate, I’m not thinking about the other games,” he said.

“The next few games will be a bit different. Hull are a side where several really good teams have gone and struggled.”
