Timm Klose hopes Norwich’s luck has turned after Saturday’s 3-2 win over Newcastle edged the Canaries closer to survival.
Martin Olsson’s stoppage-time strike secured back-to-back victories after Aleksandar Mitrovic twice drew the Magpies level.
Swiss defender Klose, a January signing from Wolfsburg, had opened the scoring for Alex Neil’s men, who are now four points clear of Sunderland and six better off than Newcastle, although both have played one game fewer.
Norwich can draw level with 16th-placed Crystal Palace by winning at Selhurst Park next Saturday and play Sunderland at home the following week in two games key for their survival.
“Some games before we’ve not had luck on our side,” Klose told Norwich City TV. “This time we did, and it felt fantastic to win the game. I’m very happy at the moment because we’ve got two big wins in our last two games.
“We’ve got more big games coming up. We want to take points from those as well.”
Olsson’s strike was his first since September 2014. “It’s a really good win for us,” the Sweden left-back said. “We were thinking about this game ahead of the international break.
“It was good to get out on the pitch and get the three points.”
