Norwich City manager Daniel Farke told the press that ‘we don’t feel any pressure’ ahead of their Championship fixture against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.
The Canaries sit five points clear of second place Watford, and fifteen ahead of third place Brentford, going into the match at Carrow Road.
That comes after back-to-back draws against Blackburn and Preston North End ended a run of 9 straight league wins dating back to the start of February.
And despite their low league position, Farke is expecting a tough test against Huddersfield.
“Huddersfield are a brave side, they play with intensity,” he said.
“They have a Leeds influence with their manager being a former assistant to Bielsa. You can feel this when you analyse their approach. They want to press, they want to be brave. I like their style, every game they go for it.
Promotion back to the Premier League could be confirmed as early as this coming weekend after Watford and Swansea both dropped points on Monday.
And Farke had a bullish reply when asked if the Canaries’ recent draws suggested they were starting to feel the heat from the chasing pack.
“We are 11 games unbeaten, 29 points from the last 11 games. I’m totally pleased with our position and we don’t feel any pressure.
“Two draws is not a crisis, we are in a top class shape. If anything it is the other way around. It is not relying on what others are doing. We are not stupid. We can read the table.
“If we achieve 94 points we will definitely finish in the top two. If the clubs below us don’t win every game it will probably be a bit less.
“It is not about looking what is happening at other pitches or being a bit down at other results. Our task is Huddersfield. We have worked so hard to be in this position.”
