Norwich City defender Timm Klose says how happy he was to get a clean sheet against Birmingham City.

The Canaries beat Birmingham 1-0 at Carrow Road, claiming their second shutout of the season.

Daniel Farke made sure his team was solid at the back, boosted by the return of Klose from injury.

The Swiss international was not only pivotal at the back, but going forward as well as he set-up the only goal of the game.

Klose’s cross-cum-shot was poked in by the studs of Nelson Oliveira in the fourth minute – the only goal of the game.

Speaking to Norwich’s website, Klose said this:

I’m really happy that we won the game.

Birmingham played a good game but we had spirit on the pitch. We brought it home which was the most important thing.

We kept a clean sheet and I did my part. There is a new thing going on here at Norwich and there have been many changes.

It will take some time. It’s just down to us to win games to bring the fans on-side.

Christoph Zimmermann and Klose formed a fine partnership at the heart of the defence, with neither Russell Martin nor Marcel Franke in the matchday squad.

The day was topped off by Grant Hanley coming on his debut in the final moments, although he was unable to touch the ball in his fleeting appearance.
