The only way for Norwich City is up, according to goalkeeper Tim Krul.

The Dutch international keeper believes City are growing in confidence from game-to-game, but accepts they’ll need to improve upon their performance at Brentford to overcome Bristol City.

“It will be another tough game. It’s a team that will be there or there abouts around the play-off positions.

“We didn’t play our best game at Brentford so we know we have to step it up a little bit and I do feel like we’ve got a good chance for a positive result on Saturday.”

City have left it late to claim results in their last four matches, but Krul is hoping they can make life easier for themselves in the weeks to come.

“It will be nice to do it a bit earlier because I have to be honest, it’s not nice for the boys at the back. We had so many chances to make it a lot easier for ourselves.

“That just shows the mental strength, the fitness of this team. We’ve shown over the years that we’re able to do it in the final five or ten minutes so fair play to them and the staff that we are that fit. It’s not a coincidence at all.”

Krul was speaking to BBC Radio Norfolk’s Rob Butler along with Kieran Dowell at an event organised by the Norwich City Fans Social Club, to help raise money for the Community Sports Foundation.

The group is comprised of City fans who are keen to bring the club’s supporters together through a variety of events, including fans forums similar to the one held with Krul and Dowell.

Usually held at Carrow Road, the group have had to be creative due to current coronavirus restrictions and utilised Zoom to bring over 100 families together to watch the pair take questions.

City’s recent form is helping their supporters believe in the team once again, according to Krul.

“10 points from the last four, we’ve come through a difficult start, confidence is growing and you can see that game-by-game.

“I think the fans are allowed to be a bit more optimistic again. To be one point off second after an average start, I think we’re doing okay. We didn’t quite get the points we deserved at the start, I think against Derby we should have probably got a point, at least.”
