Kick-off at Carrow Road tonight cannot come soon enough for Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond.

The England Under-21 star says he and his team-mates are eager to get back out on the pitch against Leeds, to try and end a run of three games without a win.

“The games come thick and fast, and we can’t really afford to dwell on situations that have gone,” Redmond said. “It’s a quick turnaround and we can’t afford to sit back and think ‘what if’ because there’s the next game around the corner.

“We literally came in, broke the game down and moved straight on to the next game and we had to pick ourselves up and get ready to go again.

“No footballer is ever pleased they lost on a Saturday, that’s the worst thing. If you go home to your family you won’t be in the best of moods but you have to know there’s another game to put it right.

“It’s playing on emotions but there’s another game around the corner and we’re ready for it.”

The 20-year-old has started all 12 of City’s Championship games so far this season and says he is enjoying life under Neil Adams, after asking the City boss to play him in his strongest position, on the right wing.

“I knew that I wanted to have a strong run on the right-hand side and I let him know that right from the start from when he was appointed as manager,” Redmond said.

“There was a lot of times last year when I was coming on and I was on the left, or if I was starting, I was starting on the left.

“I don’t mind playing on the left-hand side but if I want to get the best out of myself I feel like I need to be performing on the right-hand side and in quick succession within the first seven or eight games I already had three or four assists.

“The things I was doing at Birmingham got me my move here, which was me playing consistently on the right-hand side and putting balls in, so I knew what I was capable of.”

  • Yawn. This is all becoming far too predictable and tedious.

  • TK; I certainly wouldn`t drop Tettey for Howson either. Lee Croft is more akin to Robert than he is to Nates, A fine city. Lots of huff & puff with scant result. Both "Player of the Season". Both abandoned the sunken ship. Nates may well do the `sunken ship` bit, if the Price is Right. In Machianalli we Trust...

  • good words Mich. Redmond will be laughing either way, if we capitulate he's got a one way ticket to the PL sorted when some swag club swan in with an offer. Prove me wrong Redders.

  • I just wish they would all stop talking to the press, get focused on winning, and let the results make their statements.

  • Wise words from someone who reminds me of....wait for it....Lee Croft. One goal every blue moon and one assist every blue moon.

  • No Victor, it's exactly the right attitude. He doesn't say 'It doesn't really matter if we lost on Saturday'. He actually says the opposite, 'no footballer is ever pleased they lost on a Saturday', We want players to analyse the last game but then they need to get on to the next one and concentrate on that. They can't go back and change the result so why spend any more time on it than necessary?

  • Redders on the right, Lafferty and Hooper up top? Then swap Lafferty for either Jerome or Grabban when he starts to look like he's going to stamp on someone? That would be my game plan anyway. Also despite a poor performance Sat I would prob start Johnson to see how much he wants to boss the midfield against his old club. If at halftime he's having a stinker I'd swap him for O'Neil or Vadis.

  • Nathan still has some learning to do without doubt but what other options do we have. It is strange, given that Neil Adams was a winger, this is the one area where we seem a bit light on squad players after selling sick note, Pilks. Yes, we have Bennett in reserve for the right wing but has he fully recovered his form since his long lay off, I think not. However, we only really seem to have Josh for the left wing but then seem afraid to play him for 90 minutes. Tonight will be a test as Leeds always play a certain way whereby men need to stand up to them, perhaps this is a reason for keeping Johnson in the team despite the off form performances of late but who would drop Tettey for Howson, not me.

  • Would be interesting to see the reaction if they didn't get paid after a loss let's see if they cared then.....

  • Looking outside at the weather it looks as if it will be blowing a gale at the Carra tonight. Not sure if this will favour us or Leeds.

  • It doesn't really matter if we lost on Saturday - we've forgotten about it already and there's another game anyway - wrong attitude entirely Mr.Redmond. Every game matters - especially when we lose.

  • Josh is far more effective on the left, but Nath my friend, tick tock, you're performances need to pick up if you're to continue your starting run in the team. Clearly after the Fulham match you were 'hands up' apologising for an out of sorts display .......... we all want you to blaze a trail - beat the man and whip it in not chip it, pace means nowt if you stop and turn back to beat your man aka Snoddy OTBC INIT

  • He got noticed playing on the right for Birmingham under CH who then played him on the left for Norwich. Another reminder of how we came to be playing chump football.
