Rob Edwards praises Norwich City strikers

On-loan Norwich defender Rob Edwards says the determination of the club's strikers has fired the team to second in the Championship.

The Canaries have scored 80 league goals this season.

After Monday's 3-2 win over Derby he told BBC Radio Norfolk: "No-one's going to want to play against us, that's made us the highest scorers in the league.

"It's the amount of attacking options the manager has, and they're all playing out of their skins."

The 28-year-old Welshman has been impressed with the attitude of his team-mates since arriving on loan from Premier League Blackpool.

"It's the spirit, the never say die attitude," he said.

"You need that in football, and you need big, big players at big times."

A 96th-minute injury-time winner from Simeon Jackson in the 3-2 win over Derby kept Norwich in the second automatic promotion place.

Edwards said: "It's a massive advantage [being second] because we're in that position and we know if we win two games we're there.

"It doesn't matter what anyone else has done, we know we're promoted."

But he added: "Saying that, the pressure's on.

"We just can't look at anyone else, we know what we've got to do and if we can get six points we're in the Premier League."
