Gabriel Sara's knack for scoring goals from midfield is a quality harnessed on rough pitches in Brazil and is now shining on the Championship stage for Norwich City.

The Brazilian midfielder netted his sixth goal on the season after timing his movement to perfection to latch onto Adam Idah's cross and volley City ahead against Huddersfield on Wednesday evening. 

It was his third goal in four matches and continued a fine run of goal-scoring form for City's midfielder. 

Despite the game ending in a frustrating draw that saw Norwich fall four points behind their play-off rivals, Sara was once again an impressive performer. 

Since David Wagner's appointment in January, Sara has been unleashed - displaying a performance level attracting interest from across Europe, including from the Premier League.

If Norwich fail to win promotion this season, the squad will have to be cut - any tangible interest in Sara would likely be seized upon, especially if Wagner has plans to alter the squad radically. 

Sara's performances have followed an upward trajectory since his £6million arrival from Sao Paulo last summer. He has been producing performances in recent weeks that rival the very best performers in the division. 

There are still kinks to iron out, as a cheap concession prior to the Huddersfield equaliser on Wednesday displayed, but the overall development has been incredibly positive to follow throughout a largely disappointing performance from City's perspective. 

Only Teemu Pukki and Josh Sargent have scored more than Sara in the Championship this season - but the Brazilian is hungry for more between now and the end of the campaign. 

"The season before last I scored 10 goals in Brazil," Sara said. "I want to pass that and make a better season in the Championship.

"In Brazil, we have learned a lot about this because in our history there are a lot of midfielders who go to the box and score goals.

"Since I was a kid, someone told me about this; they told me 'go to the box and try to score'. It is not just the strikers that have to score the goals, it's also down to the midfielders, so I'm enjoying this position.

"I'm always trying to get into the box to score goals."

After uprooting his entire life from Sao Paulo to Norfolk coupled with the ongoing rehabilitation of a long-term ankle injury, there was an expectation from Norwich's coaching team and football decision-makers that it may take time for him to excel in his new surroundings. 

Whether anyone anticipated Sara reaching the level of performance witnessed in recent months is another question entirely. 

Wagner hailed his performance during City's 3-2 win over Millwall as an archetypal 'British' midfield display whilst Kenny McLean labelled him as a 'complete midfielder' recently. That praise from his peers and head coach represents the strides he has made. 

Sara is enjoying the relentless nature of the Championship, irrespective of Norwich's frustrations during this campaign - once again believing his grounding in Brazil has helped him manage the fixture list. 

"Actually, I'm used to this (playing so many games). In Brazil, it was like this as well. I love to play football and more is better," he said. "I'm happy with the goal but I want to win every game - that is all that is important to me. If I'm scoring but we don't win the game, I'm not happy."

Norwich travel to Stoke on Saturday hoping to record three points to remain in touching distance with the division's top six.

City's squad have remained in the north after their midweek draw with Huddersfield and will undergo their recovery, analysis and preparation away from their Colney base. 

"I like to watch the game again to watch my mistakes and the team's mistakes to prepare and make the next game better," the 23-year-old said.

"If you watch the game inside the pitch and then outside it is so different; you can see some space that you couldn't in the game. This helps me a lot.

"I'm learning a lot. I'm enjoying every step and every lesson. It's making me a better player and I'm feeling really well.

"The weather has been difficult and it is so cold, as well the type of game when it's physical but I came to England to experience this. I am learning and every game I think I am getting better."
