It's been a case of as you were in the Norwich City dressing room this week as players take in the changes that manager Peter Grant has announced.

Five players have been shown the exit door, but Canaries striker Robert Earnshaw says the rest of the team have only one thing in mind - tomorrow's trip to Sheffield Wednesday.

“It is fine, normal, because to be fair to all the boys they have a job to do and they do it,” said the Canaries striker, who is just two goals shy of reaching the 20 barrier in an injury-hit season.

“They come in every morning and do the training - you ask the gaffer about everybody's attitude and it is good, that is how it is.

“There are always people coming and going and you get used to it and get no with it.

“Whoever is going to be here next year is looking forward to it, so this week is about getting to Sheffield Wednesday, playing, trying to win, and finishing the season off and have a good summer.”

Hillsborough is the players' last chance to leave the travelling City fans with something to cheer about after a long and difficult season.

“There is nothing to play for, but it's the chance to go out and put on a good performance and send the fans home happy,” Earnshaw added. “Last week was disappointing, obviously, but I think we have a chance e to put it right this week and enjoy the game.”

The season doesn't end tomorrow for Earnshaw, who is still feeling his way back after three months out with a torn groin muscle - he has to prepare for two Wales matches - a friendly against New Zealand and then a European Championship qualifier against the Czech Republic - next month.

“The games are still a month away, so these last couple of weeks have been a chance to just get the fitness back for that,” he said. “It is all about getting back to fitness. I feel I am getting back to sharpness and hope I get better again on Sunday.”
