Lukas Rupp: We displayed lots of character once again

20 October 2020

It was another late show for Norwich City on Tuesday night and Lukas Rupp says it outlined the character in the dressing room even further.

The Canaries had to dig deep to break down a resolute Birmingham City defence but they did so on 87 minutes when substitute Mario Vrancic fired past Neil Etheridge.

Midfielder Rupp spoke to post-match and was delighted with the team's steeliness to continue until the death.

"We’ve played well in the last few games and maybe not got the results that satisfy us. But two wins now and we have lots of confidence now for the upcoming games.

"It shows we have a lot of character. We created a lot and the late goal showed that character. It was great for Mario to come in and score.

"It was important to get our second win in a row. It was a tough game, we should have scored earlier but in the end it was deserved."

Rupp was voted man-of-the-match by City fans in a Twitter poll straight after the game and he admitted he's thoroughly enjoying his football at present.

"I’m enjoying my football at the moment. I’m in possession a lot of the time and I can decide which side we move the ball.

"We pressed well. They had a bit more of the ball in the second-half but in the end, we had around 80% of the ball.

"We have a lot of games so we have to rotate a little bit. Everyone is doing their job at the moment."
