Defender looks ahead to Royals clash

AFOLABI Coker believes Norwich City's supporters can help inspire the Club's Under-21s to a second successive victory when they face Reading at Carrow Road on Monday (7pm).

The Development Squad emerged victorious in their most recent game, securing a notable 2-1 win away at Barclay Under-21s Premier League title challengers Tottenham Hotspur.

Coker, who was an unused substitute at White Hart Lane, told "The lads produced a really good performance.

"Everyone put the effort in and thankfully we got the result in the end. Hopefully we can get another win against Reading, and it's a game we're all looking forward to.

"We've had some ups and downs, but personally I feel like it's gone alright for me this year. We just need to kick on from where we are now."

The young defender is ready to commit himself to City's cause despite a hand injury, and says City's supporters play a big part in his side's success at home.

"As players we know the fans are going to be supporting us and cheering us on in the games," he explained.

"That makes a real difference, so it's great to have them there. Hopefully I'll be able to get myself in contention for the match, even if it means playing through the pain.

"You always want to be on the field if you've got a chance to play, so it's something you sometimes have to do. Reading are a good, strong team who can cause sides us problems but we want to get a good run going." 

Tickets for the game are FREE for all supporters, with further information available HERE.

We will be joining the team on Monday night to provide coverage across our digital channels, with video highlights to follow on Norwich City TV.
