The Boss on his side being fully focussed for a complicated game

5 April 2019

Daniel Farke said they face a complicated game against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday following Steve McClaren’s departure as manager earlier this week.

The City boss said his side will need to be fully focussed from the whistle and concentrate on their own game.

He said: “It’s always a difficult task, especially to play the first game after a change in this position, because you don’t know what will happen right now in personal terms and if they change perhaps the base formation. It’s pretty difficult to prepare the players for this game.

“On the other hand, you have to say they can’t bring any new players in and it’s not like the quality of the players who are there will change. It’s always the same after a change in this position and it always feels like there is a bit of fresh air.

“In this moment some players will come in who were not involved so much before and they want to prove that they should play in the starting line-up and also the players who were formerly involved will want to show that it was not up to them that there were some poor results. And they will think there is a new coach already in the stand and they will want to show that they are there with good quality and in the plans for the future.

“So, we have to be fully focussed from the first second to the last second on our processes and our game in order to be successful.

“We need to be there with the same workload and the same commitment and desire like in all the other games because if you are there with just 2% less then you have no chance to win any points in this league.

“It’s never a guarantee that we will win this game, but my feeling is we are not too carried away because of our brilliant form at the moment and we are pretty focussed.”

City’s match will kick-off the weekend’s Championship fixtures at 12.30pm, but Farke said they don’t feel any added pressure knowing they can get early points on the board. 

“You always have to focus and concentrate on what you can influence and the only thing we can influence is our game against QPR and if we are able to win three points, one point or no points,” he said.

“We have to let the table take care of itself, so it’s more like we just have to focus on each and every task and right now in our heads is just to get some points out of this game.

“We know that it will be complicated and we are not speaking about what will happen in two weeks or what is happening with the opponents. We are not playing against Leeds, Sheffield United or West Brom, we are playing against QPR and all we can do is fully focus on this game and to be at our best.”

Queens Park Rangers currently sit 17th in the table and their last league win came against Leeds United on February 26.

Farke said: “When this team is able to be there just a few weeks ago with a clean sheet and a win against Leeds then it shows there is quality without any doubt and in autumn they were the team of the moment with five or six wins on the spin and Steve McClaren was the manager of the month.

"They are capable of scoring goals and we are unbelievably respectful. And in the last four games there were two draws and two times they lost by one goal so it’s not like they were poor and blown away.”

Farke once again called on the fans to make Carrow Road a fortress and get behind the team as they have done all season. 

He said: “There will be some difficult periods in the next seven games but we need in each and every minute the support of our fans, especially in those periods when it’s a bit difficult on the pitch, and I totally trust our supporters that we have the support because the atmosphere, the spirit and the unity is unbelievable at the moment.

"It’s a big reason why we are successful because the players feel each and every day proud that they are allowed to wear this yellow shirt."

10-man City beat Queens Park Rangers 4-0

6 April 2019

Norwich cruised to a 4-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers despite playing part of the game with 10-men.

The Canaries got off to a flying start with goals from Emi Buendia and Marco Stiepermann inside the first 15 minutes, followed by a third from Teemu Pukki ahead of the break.

A straight red for Buendia saw City play the final 20 minutes with 10-men, but Norwich continued to dominate and Pukki added a fourth to the scoreboard.

Daniel Farke named the same starting eleven for the eighth consecutive week following City’s 1-0 win over Middlesbrough last Saturday.

Norwich made a good start to the game with a lovely bit of movement between Max Aarons, Emi Buendia and Teemu Pukki which ended with the Finn racing at goal, but he could only fire his shot into the hands of Joe Lumley from a tight angle.

City dominated possession from the off, with the Canaries taking the lead just six minutes in with a goal from Emi Buendia. Ben Godfrey sent a sensational ball out to Aarons on the right which he placed across the box for Buendia to finish in the bottom corner.

Pawel Wszolek tried to break down the right for QPR 10 minutes in, but Jamal Lewis battled to win the ball and a free-kick was awarded in favour of the City left-back.

Up the other end Norwich got their second with Marco Stiepermann finding the back of the net with a low shot from 25-yards.

City kept up the pressure and continued to attack with Onel Hernandez almost making it three just before the 20-minute mark after weaving towards goal, however his low shot was smothered by Lumley.

The Cuban saw another chance as Kenny McLean played him through with a superb ball, but his shot flashed narrowly wide.

A brilliant chance came again with half an hour gone as Pukki cut the ball back into Hernandez’s path, but he scuffed the ball wide.

Caretaker boss John Eustace made his first change just after, with his side still to have a shot at goal. The change saw Toni Leistner on for Jake Bidwell.

QPR’s first shot came 36 minutes in with the ball falling to Angel Rangel to fire from the edge of the box, but Tim Krul got down to make a smart save inside his near post.

Pukki made it three for City in the 38th minute after a mistake by Luke Freeman 30 yards out. Buendia stole the ball and fed it through to the Finn to slot home.

Norwich were awarded a free-kick just ahead of half time after Joel Lynch fouled Stiepermann just outside the box. The German midfielder stepped up to take it, but his effort went just over and onto the top of the net.

Norwich started off the second half with the same energy and dominance, with QPR struggling to get time on the ball.

The visitors won their first corner of the game 56 minutes in, taken by Freeman. His cross was put out by a City head for another flag-kick the other side. Krul was forced into action to deny a goal-bound header from Furlong, and did well to get down and push it away.

Rangers made their second substitution in the 59th minute, with Josh Scowen on for Geoff Cameron.

The chances kept coming for City with a great run from Pukki who played it out to Stiepermann on the right. He cut the ball back to the top of the box where Buendia was waiting unmarked, but he couldn’t keep hit shot down and sent it just over the bar.

Norwich went down to 10-men with 20 minutes to go after Buendia was shown a straight red for a sliding tackle on Scowen.

QPR then made their final change, with Wszolek off for Bright Osayi-Samuel.

Farke made his first substitution with 10-minutes to play, with Todd Cantwell replacing Stiepermann.

Pukki got his second goal of the game in the 85th minute after latching on to a long ball from Tom Trybull and hitting it past Lumley into the top left corner. 

City made their final two changes, with Moritz Leitner on for Pukki and Jordan Rhodes on for Trybull.

Today’s Golden Goal times were:
 
1st Goal: 5:08
2nd Goal: 11:07
3rd Goal: 37:37
4th Goal: 84:29
 
Lucky Number: 3595
