Norwich City boss Daniel Farke believes that Brentford will prove to be his side’s toughest test of the season so far.
Norwich beat Villa midweek 2-1, and are currently sixth in the table, but the visit of Brentford will prove to be a tough task according to Farke.
Brentford have recently promoted assistant coach Thomas Frank to the role of head coach following the departure of Dean Smith and Richard O’Kelly to Aston Villa.
Under the guidance of their new boss, the Bees have lost two consecutive games against Bristol City and Preston North End. But, Farke insists they have been unlucky.
”Their form has slipped away in recent weeks but it’s fine margins. They’ve been unlucky recently. Dean Smith’s philosophy is still there.’’ Farke told his pre-match press conference.
”We’ve had one day more to rest than Brentford. But I’ve said to the players, tomorrow will be our toughest game in recent weeks. Brentford, at the beginning of the season, played some of the best football in the league.”
The two sides are set to go head to head this weekend at Carrow Road with a 3pm kick off.
