Norwich City defender Christoph Zimmermann has warned that there is still a "lot of work" to be done if the Canaries are to achieve their dream of promotion to the Premier League.

Norwich have a seven-point cushion to third-placed Sheffield United at the top of the Championship table going into this weekend's game against managerless QPR at Carrow Road.

Daniel Farke's side have won their last seven matches, but Zimmermann has urged his teammates and the club's fans to guard against any complacency.

"We know that there is still seven games to play, and there's a lot of work to do," he told ITV News Anglia.

"Of course, we're also aware of the position we're in at the moment, but there's no reason now for us to change anything or to stop.

"We know that Leeds, Sheffield United and West Brom are all strong teams and they will definitely get some more points."

Zimmermann was speaking to ITV News Anglia ahead of the club's 'community day' for the QPR fixture.

Fans are being encouraged to "bring a pound to the ground" with the money raised going to the club’s charity partner the 'Community Sports Foundation'.

"It's a great thing to do and hopefully it will raise some good money for the foundation," he said.

"We've got very good characters in our squad who all appreciate the life they can live. When there's the time and the chance to give something back, I think all of us are happy to do so."
