According to head coach Daniel Farke, it is no more important for Norwich City to face Brentford in a top fight than Wycombe to play for the leaders on Sunday.

The Canaries have seven points with five wins Got ahead of the Bees, playing a tricky series of games against teams struggling to survive in ways that impressed Farke. « I’m delighted because these types of games are incredibly difficult, » said City’s boss that his team has successfully avoided these potential disruptions.

« Every matchday proves how difficult it is to win points against a team that is fighting relegation with a knife between their teeth, especially when they are about to Home is.

“Three days after the game in Coventry they went straight to a win against Brentford and their home record is more or less fantastic, many goals conceded and we got this game completely win comfortably.

« Also the same against Wycombe. Their last game was a clean sheet win against Reading and they won against Millwall and won seven of the four games before they played against us.

« Every game at this level is difficult and I felt like that we were not only professional, but also very focused, very focused and very patient when we needed it.

“For example, in the first half against Wycombe it was important to stay disciplined, to be relentless and to be good exhaust. In the second half of the year we were also able to tweak our basic education a bit to change our approach and way of thinking so we were open to accepting the challenge.

« It’s difficult to deliver this every three days and I was very happy with this and many compliments to the boys, but there are still a few games to play and we have to prove it for the coming weeks as well. « 

Brentford arrives on Carrow Road (kick-off at 5.30pm) to shorten the gap to the Canaries to four points. The leaders sat 10 minutes ahead of third-placed Watford with 13 games left.

« To be honest, we’re used to it being more or less the game of the season for every opponent, » said Farke, playing the meaning of the big game on Wednesday night.

« Every opponent is talking about it, so » Wycombe is very motivated against the leaders « and also for Brentford, who is talking about a » massive clash « .

 » In the last Years ago we played games, I remember Elland Road and Leeds were on fire two years ago, championship leaders, and everyone said, « We have to smash Norwich and then we’ll be through ».

« We went there, there were 45,000 people against us humming in the stadium and we were there with a pretty impressive win.

“Or in the last game at Villa Park we had to go back with three points to beat the league in a sold out Villa Park a really ch good team to win and we were able to come back with a win.

“Or we had the Premier League season opener in Anfield, we had a game against Manchester City where the whole country was buzzing for this game to see. To be honest, it’s not that we get goosebumps because we get to play Brentford in an empty stadium!

“Of course it’s an important game, like every single game, and if you win points , this could be the next big step, but the season wouldn’t end, just as it would if we weren’t successful. It’s not like there’s no chance of promotion any more.

« So, yeah, an important game, like our game against Wycombe, like our game against Luton will be. We’re highly motivated, we’re focused, we know we’re playing against one of the best teams in the league, we know we need top performance, but that’s it. «
