Coventry boss Micky Adams insisted his side "won't be shouting from the rooftops" following their resounding victory over Norwich.

The Sky Blues scored three goals against Nigel Worthington's men, and made their prolific strike force appear little more than average with a physical defensive display.

But Adams insists that no-one at the club is getting carried away, it was all down to a very well worked game-plan.

"We have won against a very good side, but we had a plan, and to a man they (his side) stuck to it,' he said.

"Norwich are a good side, their system suits their play.

"But we adopted a style to stifle their front three and it worked, we reduced them to very few chances.

Adams was also quick to praise the work of new signing Kevin Kyle, the former Sunderland man who managed to get on the scoresheet during an impressive home debut.

"He (Kyle) was doubtful with a thigh injury up until yesterday, but we gambled on him and I thought the work he did was great.
