Daniel Farke: We have to be calm and focussed

12 March 2019

Daniel Farke said he trusts his City side not to lose their nerves as they enter the crucial last ten games of the season.

Norwich will welcome Hull City to Carrow Road on Wednesday night in their second home match in six days and Farke said they need to continue on calm and focussed. 

“This is right now the crunch period of the season and in these moments you have to be really cool, calmed down and focussed and it will be important to not lose our nerves,” he said.

“My feeling is we handled it in all the big games and the spotlight games so far during this season and any setbacks in a pretty good way, and for that I totally trust my lads that we are capable to do this and it’s crucial in order to be successful at the end of the season.

“In the next weeks there will be some periods when there are setbacks but to go further on, to stick to your plan and to believe in yourself and be flexible in the way you approach it is also important. I’ve mentioned several times this quote but we have to have fire in the heart but be cool in the head and this will be the crucial topic for the next weeks.”

The last time Norwich faced the Tigers in November it ended in a 0-0 draw, with Hull the last team to deny the Canaries any goals in a league game.

Farke said: “Our first game was a really good point for us and I was pleased with our performance.

“We know that we face a side with many threats, especially in the offence. I’m pretty sure they will be highly motivated to respond after a difficult game for them at Nottingham, and they are still in a good position to fight for the play-offs.

“They are really good in the transition moments, they have good wingers and many options in the striker position, so we know we have to be there with a really good performance in order to win some points.”

The Canaries play a day later than promotion rivals Leeds and Sheffield United, but Farke said he is only concentrating on their results.

The City boss said: “You have to concentrate and focus on the things you want to do. So it’s not like we go into this Hull game and think about how we need a good result, it’s more like we have to be focussed on what we have to do in order to get this.

“This means we have to be focussed on what we want to do in our pressing, our possession and our build-up, and if we concentrate on these topics and are not thinking about what will happen in a few weeks or what will happen if we win or lose this game, then we just have to concentrate on what to do in order to bring a good performance and the results will come automatically.

“We are in a brilliant position and as long as we are focussed on our games and are there with good results in this stage of the season each and every game day is your game day, even if all the other opponents are winning points. The games are getting less and less and we are still in a brilliant position and for that you just have to concentrate on yourself and what you are doing and this is the message to the players.”

Farke once again said the home fans will play a key role in their success against Hull, and urged supporters to get behind the team for the whole game.

“We need our fans because we are not the big favourites this season and we play with so many young players. In this crucial period we need one unity and our fans especially in the home games and there will be tricky moments and difficult periods during all the ten games.

“We need our fans to support us, to give us confidence and especially in the moments where we are perhaps struggling a bit or having some difficult periods, it’s so important that we stick together and that we have this support and trust. Especially for our young players when they feel it’s a difficult game they need this support and this atmosphere.”

Fans are asked to be in their seats by 7.30pm at Wednesday night's game for an important announcement!

Buendia brace helps Norwich City beat Hull

13 March 2019

Norwich City made it five wins on the bounce with a 3-2 victory over Hull City at Carrow Road, thanks to goals from Marco Stiepermann and Emi Buendia (2).

City raced out of the traps and took a two-goal lead within 15 minutes. Stiepermann's gliding run and finish was followed by Buendia poking home the loose ball from six-yards.

Hull responded completely against the run of play on the stroke of half-time through Marc Pugh but the advantage was restored on the hour mark when Buendia grabbed his second after exchanging passes with Teemu Pukki.

Chris Martin's late header ensured a nervy final few minutes at Carrow Road but City held on for another three points in from of their home support.

Daniel Farke named an unchanged 18-man squad from the win over Swansea City on Friday night and an unchanged starting eleven for the fifth game in a row.

The Carrow Road faithful were treated prior to kick-off with the news that Daniel Farke and his coaching staff had committed their futures to the Club until June 2022.

The first chance for either side came in the sixth minute when an advancing Jarrod Bowen was brought down by Tom Trybull around 25 yards from goal. The Hull man stepped up and his left-footed free-kick clipped the outside of post.

City’s opener on eleven minutes was wholly down to some individual brilliance from Stiepermann. The midfielder picked the ball up on the left-hand side and weaved his way into the penalty area past a number of challenges, before slotting beyond David Marshall.

City were buoyant and they doubled their lead on 14 minutes. Buendia was persistent on the edge of the area and managed to feed Onel Hernandez whose powerful strike was beaten away by Marshall. However, Pukki and Buendia kept the ball alive the latter managed to turn the ball home for his second goal in as many games.

Buendia almost had his second and City’s third on 25 minutes when Stiepermann’s goalbound effort bounced kindly to him on the edge of the area. He sent a ferocious drive towards the top corner but Marshall was equal to it on this occasion.

After a sustained spell of possession, City created two good opportunities in the space of 30 seconds in the 31st minute. First, Stiepermann cleverly found Hernandez whose backheel was hooked wide by Pukki and then Stiepermann nutmegged Markus Henriksen before sending a dipping left-footed strike narrowly over from the edge of the box.

Buendia then had three shots on goal in the space of five minutes, with his third on 41 minutes a free-kick which just clipped the top of the netting.

After dominating the majority of the first-half, City shot themselves in the foot on the stroke of half-time as a rushed clearance from Tim Krul was pounced upon by Hull and Marc Pugh sent a half-volley in off the post.

Despite the setback, City made a positive start to the second-half with Jamal Lewis's cutback finding Hernandez in the box early on, but he struck straight at Marshall.

The goal prior to half-time had increased the nerves inside Carrow Road but a touch of brilliance from Buendia helped City restore their two-goal cushion on the hour mark. He acrobatically flicked a long-ball into the path of Pukki and although the Finn lost control of it momentarily, he delicately hooked the ball back to Buendia who rolled the ball underneath Marshall and into the net.

City began to look relatively comfortable and even looked to add further more to their advantage, Hernandez going the closest on 74 minutes when he shot low and wide after a corner was cleared.

Despite the apparent lack of danger from Hull, they did make it a nervy final few minutes when nerves when substitute Martin headed home a Kamil Grosicki with just minutes left on clock.

However, City repelled what Hull threw at them and saw out the final minutes to pick up another important three points and return to the summit of the Sky Bet Championship.
