In brief: Pre-Norwich City home press conference

Dean Holden has met the media ahead of City's Sky Bet Championship clash with Norwich City.

The assistant head coach answered questions from the local and national press along with midfielder Marlon Pack.

Here's what they had to say:

DEAN HOLDEN

- Holden says City's players should be very proud of their efforts at Manchester City

- Assistant head coach disappointed by the late goal but says the key was to be still in the tie at Ashton Gate

- Holden says it's back to the "bread and butter" of the league this weekend, aiming to end the run of four straight defeats

- Coach reports no fresh injuries but says there are some tired legs

- Liam Walsh has settled in well, reports Holden

- City are still trying to add to their squad, adds the assistant head coach

MARLON PACK

- Pack says he's still tired after Tuesday but adds he'll be ready to go again against Norwich

- Midfielder says he was proud when he heard he was singled out for praise from Pep Guardiola

- "I've got the video of him talking about me and I'm showing it to everyone I know," grins the midfield man

- He adds: "My name is quite short so perhaps it's easy to remember!"

- Pack says the players aren't too down about their four straight defeats, insisting the confidence and morale remains high

- He adds: "Norwich are a good side who have been performing well recently and they're our only focus now."
