Neil Adams insists he is not the only one under pressure from Norwich City's Championship downturn.

The Canaries' boss again made changes for the trip to the City Ground in a bid to find the winning formula which has largely deserted one of the pre-season promotion fancies.

'The pressure is always going to build if the results are not coming,' he said. 'We need to win games, simple as that. Performances have been pretty good. It's not a case of 'How do we win a game because we are not performing?'

'We have to get back up that table and there is work to do. The only way we get back on target is to win games, which is an obvious statement. The spotlight shines on us all, players, managers and coaches, because what we can't keeping doing is producing performances and throwing it away.'

The likes of Ryan Bennett, Vadis Ofoe and Wes Hoolahan are at various stage of their recovery from injuries but Adams admitted the search is on-going for new blood ahead of the next transfer window.

'We are always looking,' he said. 'Irrespective of who we have got here you always have to be aware of any players you feel can improve you. We have the loan option as well before the January transfer window so it is something we will monitor and explore if we feel it benefits it.

'It doesn't matter how organised you are in games, if players don't do their jobs you will be undone. When you don't do it you can be hurt cruelly and that is how this feels.'
