It doesn’t require a tactical mastermind to notice the defensive improvements made by Norwich City in recent months.

After the first 16 Championship games, the Canaries had conceded 32 goals. However, in the subsequent 11 games, they only let in 11.

Following their 2-1 victory at Hull City on Friday, defender Shane Duffy shared with BBC Radio Norfolk that the team has been actively working on enhancing their defensive resilience.

Duffy stated, “We recognized the need for change because there was evidently something amiss with the players we had. We gathered as a defensive unit, along with the manager, and made some minor adjustments. At the beginning of the season, we played with an attacking approach, employing high full-backs. However, when things weren’t going well, we found ourselves exposed at the back.”

He added, “There was a phase where we had to score three or four goals to win a game, which is an impossible task. So, we made a few tweaks.”

The complete interview with Shane Duffy is available on BBC Sounds.
