City boss Paul Lambert has said that bold is best as the Canaries travel to Leeds aiming to return home with all three points.
The Elland Road club are unbeaten in League One this season and City will need to be at their very best to go where no team has gone before in 2009/10.
And Lambert has insisted that his side have no interest in shutting up shop against the league leaders.
As far as he is concerned, Norwich are a match for anyone at the moment.
With only one defeat in nine and four straight wins under their belt, it’s fair to say City are the in-form team in the division.
And Lambert will order his team to attack in front of the Sky cameras on Monday evening.
“It’s a massive game, but we’re not going there as underdogs the way we are playing,” he told the press this morning. “I think with the way we’re playing at the minute, it’s terrific for the lads and for the club.
“Going up to Leeds will be a tough game. Simon has got them going well. He had them going well last year but they just missed out.
“But we’re certainly going there with a lot of confidence to win the game. You’ve got to go and play them sometime.
“We’re not going to go there with a fear factor, waiting for them to do something. We’ll play as strongly as we possibly can. We’ll try and win it and if we play as we have been, we’ll be right in the game.”
The Scot was, however, keen to stress that the City defence would need to be in tip-top form against Jermaine Beckford and Co.
To be fair, the Canaries were fairly solid in the 1-0 win at Carlisle and it is going to take another resolute performance to come away from Elland Road with a reward for their efforts.
And Lambert has told his backline to ‘play without fear’ as the Norfolk club aim to consolidate their position in the League One play-off zone.
“We’re playing the league leaders so we’ll have to be strong defensively, which we have been recently.
“The lads who will be playing there shouldn’t have any fear. If your belief is stronger than theirs and you think you’re going to win individual battles then you’ll be right in it.”
The City chief was a interested spectator at the reserves’ 7-0 thrashing of Stevenage Borough’s second string last night and the performance of one or two may have given him food for thought.
The Holt – Hoolahan – Martin trio up top is coming along nicely but Cody McDonald and Jamie Cureton staked their claims with a hat-trick and brace respectively.
And Lambert admitted that confidence was running high amongst his front men as competition for places hots up.
“With all respect to Stevenage they weren’t the strongest opponents but you’ve got to beat what’s in front of you.
“But to be fair to Cody, he looked lively all night and his goals were terrific. It’s great that the confidence is there with him, as it is with Chrissy Martin, Cureton and Grant Holt.”
And finally, in team news, there was welcome news on the injury front, with the Canary boss revealing that Jon Otsemobor was on the road to recovery after a hamstring strain.
He is, however, the only member of the treatment room that is likely to make the coach to Yorkshire.
Matty Gill, who completed 45 minutes against Borough last night, still needs more second string action before being considered.
“We’re hoping Otsemobor will be ready,” continued the former Celtic hero.
“But he’s the only one who will be coming back for Monday night. Michael Nelson, Owain Tudur Jones and Michael Spillane are still struggling.”
