Farke out to finish season in style

Daniel Farke insists there will no final week let-up from Norwich because his promotion-winning players deserve to "lift some silverware".

Norwich have achieved what they set out to do at the start of the season under Farke by booking a return to the Premier League just a few months after being relegated from the top flight.

But having now got themselves in a position to go and be crowned Championship winners the German doesn't want the opportunity to pass them by.

The Canaries bounced back from a pair of defeats to win 3-1 at QPR on Saturday and need to win one of their final two games – at home to Reading on Saturday or at Barnsley a week later – to win the league.

And they won't even need to do that if Watford drop points in either of their final two matches, against playoff duo Brentford and Swansea.

"To be on 93 points after 44 game days is great," Farke told PinkUn. "Five points clear with two games to go is an even better position. Watford perhaps have the quality to win the last two games so we need to keep going, stay professional, disciplined and serious.

"We want to finish the season in style. Two difficult upcoming games because both teams will fight for the best possible position so it will not be easy.

"We are promoted and that's great but the lads also deserve to crown themselves and lift some silverware, so hopefully we are able to manage this."

Norwich are 1.50 to beat Reading, whose 2-2 draw with Swansea on Sunday means they can no longer make the playoffs.
