Tom Trybull: Our first-half performance set up Bolton victory

16 February 2019

Tom Trybull believes the quality of Norwich City’s first-half display at Bolton Wanderers was the key in their 4-0 triumph.

City eased to a three-goal advantage at the break after slicing their opponents open at will, then going on to seal the victory after the interval.

Speaking to post-match, Trybull said: “It was a very good result, a very good performance, especially in the first-half. After the defeat on Wednesday, we showed good character and showed a good performance which was very necessary.

“All of us were not happy with the last game [v Preston], so in general, it’s a very good day.

“It’s always important [to score early] like the game we had before against Ipswich. We went in-front very early in the game and it helps for the team’s self-confidence.

“Especially today, we showed lots of good football and this is what he have to do to keep going.

“In general, over the last few weeks, apart from the Preston game, we’ve showed some really good performances and good football.

“It’s very tough this season, especially when you’re at the top of the table. This is what we have to do, to stay up there.”

Trybull endured a frustrating start to the season on a personal level with minutes hard to come by, but he has grasped his opportunity recently following some injuries difficulties for other City midfielders.

“I’m feeling very good,” he stated. “I was not happy with my last performance against Preston but I think the games before, I showed some really good performances and that this is my standard.

“Today, I showed again a good performance. But the main thing is to help the team. Sometimes, it doesn’t look very nice what I’m doing but most of the times it’s very important so I can help the offensive players.

“You have to [perform at your best]. I know what I’m capable to do and how to play. Most of the time, it’s competition between Alex [Tettey] and me but it’s not really competition because he did really well in the last few months, but now everybody knows what I can do.

“I’ve showed it in the last few games against some very good opponents.”

City have spent the past four days in the north west of the country after successive away games at Preston and Bolton and Trybull admitted he is looking forward to a return back to Norwich.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back into my own bed! We’ve had four days in a hotel so I’m looking forward to getting back home.

“The next game is on Saturday so we have plenty of time to rest and prepare before then.”
