Jonathan Rowe has admitted to being 'in awe' of the Elland Road atmosphere ahead of the play-off semi-final second leg there on Thursday.

Rowe's Norwich City visit Leeds United's famous home hoping to secure passage to the Wembley final, having drawn 0-0 in the first half of the tie.

The 21-year-old made his first start since January in that game, and will hope to make the line-up again four days later to make his third appearance at the stadium.

The first of those came in a flurry of Premier League games two years ago, when he hit the woodwork late in a 2-1 defeat.

Rowe featured in games against Liverpool and Manchester United during that run of games, but Leeds still stands out to him when he looks back.

"Those three (Anfield, Elland Road and Old Trafford) are probably the main ones that stood out to me," he said. "Anfield is Anfield, it was a fortress and has been for the last few years. That club has a lot of weight, and Old Trafford was just huge.

"Elland Road had the most noise that I can remember. That I was a crazy game. Even though we lost I was just in awe of the atmosphere."

Rowe says the experience gave him the impetus to seek similar ones in his career, describing that game as a "dream".

Since then he's gone on to become a key player for the Canaries despite missing nearly a full season with injury, as well as making his debut for England's under-21s.

"I couldn't believe it, this was what my dream was literally about," he continued, speaking to Football Daily. "Even though we lost, it was just like, 'wow'. Imagine being on the opposite side to that. I feel like that's a feeling that I always chase.

"Those kind of moments, they kind of keep you motivated and hungry for trying to make yourself feel that emotion in the future."
