Under pressure Plymouth boss Ian Foster is wary of Norwich City’s threats as his side prepare for an inevitable reaction after September’s 6-2 defeat over the Canaries. 

David Wagner admitted in his pre-game press that the Home Park drubbing has added an extra edge to their preparations for this Good Friday clash. 

Foster wasn’t in the dugout for that game, and is facing pressure from Argyle fans after a run of one victory in their last 10 matches that has dragged them into a relegation battle. 

The need for results has intensified, and Foster is ready for a reaction from City as they seek revenge for that defeat in the autumn. 

“They’ve played incredibly well. I think it’s one defeat in ten,” Foster said in his pre-match press conference. 

“They are a really exciting, expansive team and have some excellent individuals but as a team they have a lot of creativity in the group.

“It’s going to be a really interesting game.

“I’m sure the previous game doesn’t sit well with them. I’ve watched the game back and it was a wonderful performance to go 5-0 up against any team in this division.

“I spoke to Adam Forshaw on it, he played the second half in that game. It hurt them. 

”They are on an incredible run at the moment and have been picking up a lot of positive results - we have to make sure that we’re on it.”

Foster has struggled to develop the same rapport with the Argyle supporters as Steven Schumacher created and has faced calls to be sacked during this difficult run.

The former England U20 boss has vowed to fight on and is determined to make a success of his Home Park spell. 

"Our fans are obviously frustrated with recent results and they have every right to be, and we feel the same,” he said. “They care deeply about this football club and I have a lot of appreciation for that.

"But that only gives me extra determination to make sure we get things right for them. It would genuinely mean a lot for them, for the community and for the city if we get this right so I understand the fans' sentiment.”
