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.”
