Canaries chief Neil Doncaster has warned that the club's Big Brothers are keeping a close eye on Peter Grant's performances in the Carrow Road hot-seat.

Grant is facing his biggest crisis after almost a year in charge, with City dropping to 20th in the Championship after a string of lacklustre results.

Tensions reached a new high after the shambolic 2-0 defeat at Wolves on Saturday, when even star player Darren Huckerby described the City side as the weakest he'd ever played in. And the pressure was cranked up yesterday with Doncaster admitting that fans are being short-changed.

“We should certainly not be where we are in the table at the moment,” he said. “Our supporters do not deserve what they witnessed on Saturday. They are entitled to expect better performances.”

City have just seven points from seven games this season, but Saturday's performance - which Grant described as the worst of his coaching career - was a new low.

Angry fans have been quick to make their feelings known, generating an atmosphere reminiscent of that of a year ago when Nigel Worthington's empire came crashing down after a string of poor results.

Doncaster added that a return to the top flight remained the club's ambition, saying: “The ambition of everyone associated with the club is to be promoted to the Premier League and to establish Norwich City as a regular member of that league. The board continues to monitor progress on and off the pitch on a regular basis.”
