Norwich City boss Neil Adams is prepared to bring in reinforcements if the Canaries’ squad continue to fail.

Adams’ own future remains a hot topic after just one Championship win in the last 10, which culminated in an angry response from home fans following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Reading.

City opted against a loan move in the closing stages of the emergency window last week but Adams is not ruling out a foray into the January market.

“You have to keep looking and there is the option out there to bring players in,” he said. “I feel the players here are good enough but the longer this run goes on then it looks like they are not.

“Everyone can see we are conceding too many goals. They are preventable goals as well. I have said before ideally you need a settled team but particularly in that back four or five with the keeper and we have chopped and changed it for the very reason that we have not looked solid enough - whether that is because of individual mistakes from open play or set pieces.”

Fit-again striker Gary Hooper is one player who has grabbed his chance to impress in recent matches with goals against Brighton and Reading.

“He scores goals. He looks after the ball, he gets into the box and you saw that in his performance,” said Adams. “When he got that early goal you are thinking we could go on here and win the game, but we didn’t and we only have ourselves to blame. You have to earn it in this league.”
