Norwich City manager Daniel Farke accepts that his side need to put a win on the board by defeating fellow Premier League strugglers Watford on Friday evening.
The Canaries are 19th in the table following a run of six games without a win, with the Hornets the only team currently below them in the standings.
It’s always good to win home games, we really need to be successful tomorrow.Daniel Farke
And Farke admits that a victory is needed to give everyone associated with the club a lift as they aim to move clear of the relegation zone and avoid fighting to escape an immediate return to the Championship.
He told reporters at his pre-match press conference: “It’s always good to win home games, we really need to be successful tomorrow.
“Even tomorrow we are probably seen at having less than a 50 per cent chance of winning the game, but we need to keep fighting and get as many wins as we can to survive in the Premier League.”
Meanwhile, Farke reiterated his support for striker Teemu Pukki, who has gone six games without finding the net after starting the season with six goals in his first five appearances.
He added: “He is an experienced striker, he knows these times of struggling to score will come, but he knows we all trust him to get those goals flowing again.”
Finland international Pukki is priced at 5/4 to score at any time against Watford, with the Canaries 17/10 to win the game and 11/1 to do so by a 1-0 final scoreline.
