From the opposition

Daniel Farke knows that his Norwich side will be up for a tough game when Nottingham Forest, despite what The Reds' league position shows.

He said: "First of all we have shown it many times that each and every game is very difficult. I don't judge Nottingham Forest on their position now, I judge them by their potential.

"They are still challengers for the top six. They have an experienced coach and I think they are one of the best teams in the offence in the league. It is just a question of time until they start an unbeaten run. It is not if more when. 

"Since Chris (Hughton) took over they have had some unbelievably bad luck with injuries. The team is struggling a bit but they have quality and with his leadership and knowledge, it is just a question of time until they start a really good run.

"I have them as still a competitor for the top six. We know we have to be fully focused and fully switched on against them."
