Eradicating mistakes is the key aim for Leeds United manager Darko Milanic ahead of his side's visit to Carrow Road tonight.

The former Slovenian international defender has not tasted victory in his first four matches since taking charge at Elland Road.

Defeat at Brentford was followed by home draws with Reading and Sheffield Wednesday and a 2-1 loss at Rotherham last Friday night.

The former Sturm Graz boss knows that first victory isn't likely to come tonight either, unless his team are able to execute his gameplan perfectly.

'It won't be the same like Rotherham. If I think it will an easy game, it won't be. It will be extremely difficult,' Milanic (pictured) told the Yorkshire Post.

'We know that Norwich are one team who have experience in the Premier League and in the first-team squad is one young player and all the rest are experienced.

'They are quick and play a good English style of football with a lot of power and overlaps down the sides. They are a dangerous and a good team.

'But we know that in the last three games, there have been parts where we have been very good and controlled the games and had chances. But we have to not have mistakes.

'We have to give our maximum and we have to run, play good and fight and tough in our challenges against a good team. We must also have a little luck to win the game.'

Milanic has no fresh injury worries to contend with and is expected to largely stick with the same team which lost at Rotherham, having led early in the game through Italian striker Mirco Antenucci.

One change the Whites' boss is thought to be considering however is replacing Lewis Cook at the attacking tip of his diamond midfield with Brazilian 20-year-old Adryan.

'Adryan played 30 minutes very well (at Rotherham),' Milanic added. 'He was dangerous and took responsibility and received the ball and played forward and was brave. He showed a lot of quality.'
