Darren Huckerby is looking forward to hearing a united voice from Norwich City's travelling army of fans at Loftus Road this afternoon.

Darren Huckerby is looking forward to hearing a united voice from Norwich City's travelling army of fans at Loftus Road this afternoon.

Despite the troubled times at the club recently, City's fans are still expected to turn out in numbers today. Those very same fans have been divided in recent times because of the great Worthington debate, but Huckerby hopes they will get behind the team in their hour and a half of need today.

“I wouldn't say they have got what they wanted - but a lot of people wanted the manager out and now he's gone so hopefully they're singing for us now,” said the flying winger.

Huckerby admits that times have been difficult, with the uncertainty over not just the identity of the new manager, but also his plans.

“You can't shrug it off - but you have to get on with it,” he said. “Realistically, nobody knows where the future lies. A new manager comes in - he might not like anybody, staff included, so everyone is on edge.

“My contract is up at the end of the season - but it's not just me. Even if you have got a contract it doesn't mean the manager is going to like you so it's difficult.”

What Huckerby wants is to get on with the matter in hand - playing football as they did before the last international break.

“Obviously the board have made a decision and it is up to the lads to get on with it now,” he said. “There's been some bad circumstances. We have had a lot of injuries and people away with internationals so we haven't had a lot of people here and it will be good to have everybody back and start focussing on football again.

“QPR have had a couple of good results, but before that they had been average, so it is up to us to get back to playing where we were before Barnsley.”
