Live coverage of Norwich City's pre-match press conference ahead of their fixture at home to Birmingham City.

Our reporters will bring you all the latest from Norwich City manager Alex Neil's press conference as the Canaries prepare to face Birmingham City in the Championship at Carrow Road.

Canaries manager Alex Neil hailed the battling 3-1 win over Paul Lambert's Wolves as a breakthrough moment but ahead of Birmingham's weekend visit Neil knows that must be the norm over the run-in.

'That is something we have lacked,' he said.

'We have played teams who I don't think have got better players than us but they have had that desire and willingness to scrap, head and lump things and made it difficult. We have not really matched that and I felt against Wolves we matched that in every area.

New Blues' boss Gianfranco Zola is looking for his first win since replacing Gary Rowett and Neil accepts it will take more than decent home form to prove the Canaries are on the up.

'I have to get it into the players so they understand what is required at this level. They are capable of playing at a higher level but to win games you have to do the dirty work and Wolves was a big step forward,' he said.
