DAVID Flitcroft has no doubt Harry Smith is more than capable of spearheading Swindon Town’s attack as he prepares to fill Luke Norris’ boots at Norwich City in the Carabao Cup tomorrow evening.Norris won the pre-season duel for the target man role in the Town side and repaid his manager with the team’s first goal of the campaign during Saturday’s 2-1 win at Carlisle in their League Two opener.
Marco Stiepermann sought out the pacy attacker with another probing ball over the top but Watkins had strayed offside.
The intent was clear, as the prowling Farke patrolled his technical area.
“We saw from his goal, he does want to score goals.
I think it was offside, I don’t think it was for a foul, but he was there and he was anticipating.
Norwich sought to be the aggressors; to force the pace rather than wait for events to unfold.
