David Wagner is on a mission to produce a side that Norwich City supporters can be proud of - as over 2,700 fans prepare to make the trip to Coventry. 

The German is tasked with rebuilding a connection between those in the stands and the players after it slowly eroded over recent months for a multitude of reasons. 

Following City's convincing 4-0 win over Preston North End last Saturday, Wagner led his players over to the travelling contingent to share a moment of togetherness as both sides displayed appreciation for each other. 

Wagner was seen pushing his players towards the supporters at Deepdale and held back to allow them to have that moment. 

With optimism growing, over 2,700 fans will be making the trip to the Midlands for Saturday's game, despite a 12.30pm kick-off and the fact the game will be televised. 

"I think this following is outstanding," Wagner said. "You can't name a lot of clubs in the Championship who can deliver this. Hopefully, we can make them happy and give them a good afternoon on Saturday again.

"With the energy that they deliver on the stands, this will help us for sure. At Preston, we had nearly a thousand and now we will have over two and a half thousand.

"This shows how supportive they are and this shows that we should pay them back - this is exactly what we want to do."

Wagner is hoping a win over Coventry will help repair relations as he promises to build a side that City fans will be able to relate and connect with in the stands.

"What the supporters have shown so far was just incredible. I'm very happy and so glad that the players were able to pay them back with their performances in the last two games and with the last result. This should continue," City's boss said.

"It can only be the start for all of us. We have only been together for two and a half weeks and we have done the right steps in the right direction and now we have to make sure that we do enough on the grass so the supporters can be proud of us.

"This is what we are trying to do. Like always, I cannot promise a result - I have no idea (how it will go) and I hope we will win but I can only promise that we will work our socks off to produce a performance at the highest level."
