Sky Bet Championship: Norwich manager Neil Adams lauds striker Kyle Lafferty

Norwich manager Neil Adams was full of praise for Kyle Lafferty after he continued his fine form for Northern Ireland during the international break.

Lafferty, yet to score for the Sky Bet Championship leaders, netted in wins over Faroe Islands and Greece to make it three in three Euro 2016 qualifiers.

It followed an impressive substitute appearance in Norwich's 1-1 draw at home to Rotherham last time out when his free-kick struck a post allowing Cameron Jerome to tap in an equaliser.

Lafferty, who is expected to shake off a knee complaint, will now be hoping to be given a starting berth when City head to Fulham on Saturday.

Adams told Norwich City TV: "It's important, particularly for strikers, to score goals. Kyle's done that really well for Northern Ireland, two in two in these last games is great if nothing else than just for confidence.

"Players want to be playing well, they want to be playing in the team and they want to do what they've been brought to the club for. It's the same with the midfielders, the defenders and the goalkeepers.

"I'm really pleased for Kyle because I thought he was excellent when he came on for us in the last game, and he's gone away and scored the two goals. That's exactly what you want from your players."
