David Wagner has outlined the three-point plan which transformed Norwich City’s Championship fortunes.

The Canaries have picked up 47 points from the last 24 league games to gatecrash the top six, ahead of Easter Monday’s trip to promotion rivals Leicester City.

Wagner had to bat away questions on his own Carrow Road future earlier this season before plotting a dramatic turnaround.

“The first reason is we all together, especially the dressing room, stuck together the whole time despite all the noise which was on the outside,” he said. “The second reason is what myself and my backroom staff had to do, and that was to have honest and clear conversations, analyse what went wrong, and show what we have to do better.

"We had to give the squad a clearer idea in training, and video sessions, in regard of where we had to improve and how we had to improve it. It's quite easy to say, ‘Oh, we concede too many goals.’ But why, and what we will do against this? It's quite easy to say, ‘Oh, we have to play better football.’ Yes, but how?

"Those were questions which everybody has the right to ask, and then it is up to me to find the answers and solutions for this. And the players took it on board, executed it quite well, and we also got one or two back from injuries, which obviously helped as well.

"So there are a few reasons why the players consistently now perform, and have got those results in the last 24 games.”

The Foxes were the first side to beat Norwich at Carrow Road earlier this season, but the Canaries pushed them all the way in a 2-0 September league defeat.

“It's not about the last game. To be fair you also saw in that game how good they are,” said Wagner. “This time it's about now, and the moment, and this is exactly how we’d like to approach it.

"For me, Friday was a little bit about the last game because obviously Plymouth really hurt us when we met them, and this was something we were desperate to correct and, luckily, the players did.”
