Daniel Farke: It will definitely be an amazing atmosphere

Boss gives his thoughts ahead of second leg.

Leeds United face Norwich City at Elland Road on Thursday night, with the game getting started under the lights at 8pm. 

The Whites drew 0-0 with the Canaries in the first leg of this Sky Bet Championship Play-Off semi-final, and both teams are now looking to secure a place at Wembley for the final. 

Speaking to the media at the end of the first leg at Carrow Road, Daniel Farke gave his thoughts on what he believes will be another memorable backing from the stands in the second leg.

“I think it will definitely be an amazing atmosphere, probably much whiter than yellow,” the manager stated. 

“I think it will be a pretty, pretty impressive atmosphere on Thursday. 

“But, we also have to make sure that we are again not overexcited. So to show a good mental strength in this moment will be also quite important.”

Onto the game itself on Thursday, Farke is still fully aware of the threats Norwich pose, but is pleased to see his side returning to home turf. 

He said: “Everything is still possible.  

“Norwich is just a really good side and also a threat on the counter attack. 

“If you're too greedy and open too many spaces, then they could punish you. We have to make sure that we find a good fine margin. 

“Obviously we like to play at home, there’s no doubt about this. We have overall a really good home record in the season, but it's no guarantee. 

“So still 50-50 and then both sides have the same chance to earn their spot in the final.  

“I’m pleased with the performance [in the first leg], also overall happy with the result but nothing is done yet. 

“So it's still a tight game and we have to make sure that we keep going because Norwich are really, really dangerous.”
