Norwich boss comments on Elland Road atmosphere

Norwich City boss Alex Neil is not fazed by the prospect of taking his side to Elland Road to face Leeds United tonight.

Alex Neil has insisted to the Pink'Un that Elland Road is not an intimidating place for his Norwich City side to visit.

Norwich travel to Leeds tonight and there is likely to be a raucous atmosphere at one of the loudest stadiums in the Football League.

However, Neil is adamant that his players should not be fazed by the environment that they are playing in and wants them to show their class in the fixture.

“Leeds is one of those away grounds where the fans will back them if they are doing well," he said.

"I wouldn’t say it is an intimidating place but we have to start at a high tempo, put them on the back foot, and quieten the crowd. We aim to be the dominant side and that is what we’ll set out to do."

Norwich are one of the form sides in the Championship, but Leeds have proven dangerous opponents since the turn of the year.

Although the Whites have lost their last three matches they have improved considerably of late and they will be determined to cause an upset against Norwich.

Doing so may be easier said than done, though, as Neil's men travel to Yorkshire in desperate need of the three points.

The Canaries are locked in a battle for automatic promotion and they know that a win against Leeds will strengthen their position in the Championship table considerably.
