Norwich are now 1/2 in bwin’s Championship winner predictions after moving four points clear at the top of the table, with just eight games left to go.
The Canaries prevailed 2-1 against Rotherham at New York Stadium on Saturday, thanks to goals from Kenny McLean and Ben Godfrey.
That made it six wins on the spin for City, as they edged ever closer to securing automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Daniel Farke declared: “Each and every player was switched on. Everyone was highly motivated. This win is massive. I am a pretty happy man. It was a team performance.
“We are handling spicy games and when we are in the spotlight. We have overachieved in the eyes of so many people so far. It’s a good position to be in.
“This is a really tough place and it’s difficult to beat them, but we were willing to dig in and it was a massive performance.
“We had to show steel and togetherness. We have had more entertaining games of football, but it was important to win some battles. It’s a joy to work every day with these lads.
“We know we are in a brilliant position. It’s not already done, but we have a big chance in the fight for automatic promotion.
“We hope the players come back from the international break without any injuries and we will go again.”
Blades climb above Whites
Sheffield United have been cut to 3/1 in bwin’s Championship winner predictions after a 1-0 win at Elland Road saw them leapfrog Leeds into second place.
The Whites were the better side on Saturday lunchtime but failed to capitalise on their chances, allowing Chris Basham to fire the Blades to victory.
“Great victory, not a great performance,” visiting manager Chris Wilder said.
“But I’ve said all along, I am not going to be embarrassed about winning against the run of play a little bit.
“Because I think in 18 months at this football club, we’ve smashed some sides and not got what we’ve deserved.
“It was a tough afternoon, a tough test for us – I’m delighted that we’ve come away with a result against the run of play.”
Leeds fell five points off the pace and are out to 9/2 end up on top of the table.
It was a case of what could have been for the Whites after dominating the first half and seeing Tyler Roberts hit the post with the scores still level.
Marcelo Bielsa said: “If we analyse the game, we can’t be unsatisfied, but we’re disappointed with the result.”
Kiko Casilla was sent off late on to rub salt into the hosts’ wounds, while defender Pontus Jansson will be sidelined for three weeks by a knee injury sustained in that game.
West Brom kept their slim title hopes alive with a 1-0 victory at Brentford under caretaker boss Jimmy Shan, but Albion are 11 points adrift of Norwich and available at 100/1.
