Cameron Jerome is warning Norwich City must cut out the 'amateur' errors that halted their Championship promotion surge on Tyneside when they look to get back on track Saturday at Wolves.

Jerome could only watch helplessly after being substituted as the Canaries' collapsed in stoppage time to lose 4-3 at Newcastle during the week.

The 30-year-old is confident City have the experience and the talent to put things right at Molineux.

'It is certainly not panic stations,' he said. 'We know that can't really happen too often and it probably won't happen again. It is amateurish stuff, low-level stuff, basic defending. We are aware of that and we want to move on to Wolves and I am sure we will put in a good performance. You'll play games when you pick someone else's pocket. It is swings and roundabouts.

'Coming off the back of any disappointment you want to put it to bed and in this league there is plenty of opportunity to do that. There is nothing you can do about it now. You can't sulk or over-analyse things, just chill out, relax. It can happen. You know you are not going to win 46 league games this season. It is the manner we lost, but you have to focus on the next one and Wolves is our focus.'

Jerome had earlier notched his fourth of the campaign with a superb curling finish at St James' Park.

'I have scored some good ones throughout my career. I just spotted a gap and the management keep telling me to shoot more instead of passing,' he said.

'From a personal point of view it was nice to get another goal but the result was disappointing. I am happy with my own level at the moment. Getting a good run of games and the team picking up results and scoring goals all combine. You can see with Jacob (Murphy) what that confidence does.

'He is shooting and it is coming off people and going in. You can get into a nice groove. I have told him he has got the jersey now and just to keep going.'
