Norris Pleased With Cup Progression

Norris Pleased With Cup Progression

Goalkeeper Will Norris has said he's delighted Wolverhampton Wanderers made it through to the fourth round of the EFL Cup, setting up a tie against Manchester City, but credit to Bristol City they definitely made it a tough test.

With Wolves having to wait until the 98th minute to find a way through a resolute City defence, Bright Enobakhare eventually settled nerves as he connected with a Barry Douglas cross, and we certainly had Norris to thank for a number of steady saves to protect the clean sheet.

Speaking to the Official Website with the players now preparing for the next clash at the weekend against Barnsley, Norris explained.

'Yeah, it was a fairly busy night for myself but I`m just here to do my job and it`s all I can do really. We`re only three games into the season for me but I`ll make sure that I`m absolutely ready for every opportunity in case I`m called upon. I can only pull on the shirt, do the best I can, get the clean sheets and have a real good go in this cup run.'

Norris went on to say.

'That`s how we`ve got to look at it - we`ve got as many games as possible in this cup, it`s only going to be good for me. Bristol gave us a really good test, I thought they were absolutely excellent - full credit to them. The main thing is that we`ve got through - a few extra minutes under our belts which we didn't really want but I thought the boys did really well to keep our composure, keep the ball moving well and ultimately to get the win in the end.'

Asked on what kind of game he prefers, a busy one to shine, or a quiet one because it means we're more in control, he admitted he prefers the quiet games as it should mean a positive result is more likely.

'I prefer the quiet games, I`ve always said that but when I`m called upon, I`m just pleased to make the saves. We`ve got three clean sheets from three games - I`m pleased with that! It`s just how far can we get in this competition - in all competitions, when the FA Cup starts I`m sure it will be the same. How far can we go?'

With Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the next round of the competition, he knew it would be a fantastically tough test for us so it was about treating it as just another game, doing what we can and for him personally, it would be another game under his belt.

'The more games we have in this cup, the more games I'll play and as a footballer, all you want to do is play games - the more the better really. It gives the players who aren't getting much of a look-in in the league a chance to go out and get a full 90 minutes. The young lads coming through are experiencing some first team football as well - it`s excellent for the whole squad really. The more games we have in the competition, the better and it leaves the door open for the players to give the gaffer a problem.'
