Jacob Sorensen thanked his Norwich City teammates for urging him to shoot more in matches, as he netted his first Canaries goal in a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest.
The Dane lashed home on the stroke of half-time to give City a deserved lead over Forest, but they were pegged back in the second-half following Anthony Knockaert’s equaliser.
Reflecting on the evening, Sorensen said: “It was really nice to score, and especially to do it in front of the fans as well.
“When they equalised, the fans showed they were behind us once again. They cheered us up and it was key in the victory.
“Everyone looks forward to playing in front of fans.
“I’ve been talking with a few of the lads in the dressing room and they say I should shoot more, it paid off today.
“It’s always nice to score just before the break. We knew it was an important goal but we didn’t come out that well in the second-half.”
“But still, we’ve grinded the result out in the end and that’s very important.”
The win was City’s tenth of the season and Sorensen says the winning mentality the team is showing at present bodes well.
“We want to win every game, even though we get setbacks in games we still try to play our way.
“I came here in the summer and it’s never felt like there was a major setback last year. Everyone has the ambition of going up as quick as possible.”
