Norwich City have 76 points in the league going into this weekend’s game against Sheffield Wednesday, and Daniel Farke wants his side to reach 80 as soon as possible.
“We know we are starting to get into the crunch time of the season,” he said in Friday’s press conference at Lotus Training Centre. “We spoke before the Luton game how it's important to be even more greedy after a spotlight game against Brentford.
“After a few days and a mini-break, we need to keep going in the same way.
“We want to achieve 80 points to secure our place in the play-offs. We now have three games in six days so a busy time and plenty of points available.”
Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to rectify a run of six league defeats this weekend, Darren Moore having been appointed as manager before the last two of them.
“It's a great chance for Sheffield Wednesday to change their momentum and work on their self-confidence,” Farke said. “It's like a free shot for them.
“Darren Moore is a great guy and a good coach. He had a difficult start in his first game and then played against a top side with ten men. They will have used this week to regroup - I expect them to be there with a good fighting spirit.
“And they have some top players. Bannan, Reach, Paterson, Rhodes, Lees - we have to be on top of our game on Sunday.
“We had a spotlight game against Brentford and we dominated this game to win. But we've also been patient against teams lower down the league and in mid-table. I've been impressed with how we've adapted to the challenges."
