Don Goodman makes Norwich City promotion claim after poor run of recent results

Published

on

Norwich City will be hoping they can return to winning ways at the earliest of opportunities in the Championship. 

The Canaries are sat top of the second-tier standings, but could lose top-spot on Wednesday evening if second-placed Brentford are to beat Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Daniel Farke’s side are winless in their last three league matches, and will know that they need to put together a positive run of results at the earliest of opportunities if they’re to stand a chance of winning promotion back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Speaking on EFL On Quest, Don Goodman felt as though Norwich won’t be panicking about their recent slump in results in the Championship, before admitting that he thinks Daniel Farke would have been happy with this position if he was offered it at the start of this year’s campaign.

“You can’t go 46 games without a blip – it’s just impossible. The fact that the league has turned on its head within three games where Brentford have taken nine points, Swansea have taken seven points and where Norwich have taken two points and more
importantly failed to score in three games, it’s what the Championship can do to you.

“They won’t be panicking. If you offered Daniel Farke this position before a ball was kicked this season he probably would have
taken it and fancied their chances of seeing the job through come the end of the season. It’s just about resetting and going again if you’re Norwich City.”

Norwich are set to return to action this weekend, when they take on play-off chasing Stoke City, in what could potentially be a tricky test for the Canaries at Carrow Road.

Did these former Norwich players leave the club for a higher or lower fee than what they arrived for?

The Verdict:

I think they’ll be nervously looking over their shoulders.

Norwich City looked as though they were almost certain to win promotion back into the Premier League at the first time of asking this season, but their poor run of results will be a slight concern amongst the Carrow Road faithful.

The promotion-chasing pack behind them in the second-tier are closing the gap on them at an alarming rate, with Brentford having the chance to knock them off top-spot in the Championship with a win over Reading on Wednesday evening.

So, it’s vital that Daniel Farke’s side put together a positive run of results in the near future, otherwise
