Ben Godfrey: We want to achieve something special

26 April 2019

Ben Godfrey said the team is focussed and ready for their final home game of the season as they take on Blackburn Rovers on Saturday night.

The Canaries go into the match unbeaten in their last 12 games and Godfrey said the lads are looking forward to another brilliant atmosphere at Carrow Road.

“It’s why we play football, to be involved in these sort of games,” Godfrey said. “Everyone is looking forward to it but at the end of the day we have got a job to do, so we will all be focussed and ready to go.

"The Boss has had us working hard and everyone is fit and ready. The boys are looking forward to it and the atmosphere is good.”

Last time the two teams met was at Ewood Park in December when Teemu Pukki found the net with minutes to go to end the game 1-0.

Speaking about the task they face, Godfrey said: “Teemu popped up with a late goal last time as he has done many times this season but we know it’s not going to be easy.

“Everyone says it all the time but there are no easy games. They are a hard team to break down and they have got good attacking threats as well so it will be a tough one and we’ve got to be on it.

“Last time we had to wait until the 85th minute to get a goal so it proves that they are a tough side to play against and we know we had to really work hard for the three points last time round.

“As it stands we are sitting at the top so we have got to be pleased but as I said it’s not over, there’s two games left and they are two massive games. We want to achieve something special, so it’s great to look at the table now but it’s far from over.”

The match is another sell-out at Carrow Road and Godfrey said they need the same support from the fans they have experienced all season.  

“I can only thank them for the support they have shown so far," he said. "They have been unbelievable travelling the distance that they have from Norwich so we are very thankful. And tomorrow as always turn up in your numbers and create an unbelievable atmosphere because we will need it to get over the line.”
