Neil Adams is urging Norwich City's supporters to keep the faith following fresh Championship frustration in a 0-0 draw against Sheffield Wednesday.

The Canaries pounded away at Hillsborough but could find no way past the Owls' keeper Keiren Westwood in a draw that extended their winless league run to five matches.

Adams is backing his troops to come good after watching City fail to cash in again despite a creating a series of clear-cut chances.

'You just have to keep plugging away, otherwise you are literally trying to re-invent the wheel,' he said. 'The players know the situation because we lay it on the line.

'They know what we feel and how it is. It's a case of telling them, 'Look, this is how it is sometimes in football,' we have not deserved to lose any of the games in recent weeks, but it hasn't happened and I accept it is only us we can look at as to why that has been the case.

'We know if you carry on playing like that we will score goals and win games. I am not worried about the fact the wins have not come, but I accept the facts are there. I felt we were the better team, and of course people might expect me to say that, but look at how much we created in that second half. Our passing was sharp and bright, we had plenty of possession again but unlike the Fulham match we imposed ourselves on the game.'

City slipped down to sixth in the table, although cut the gap to current leaders Derby, who lost 2-1 at home to Wigan, by a point after a weekend which again underlined the unpredictable nature of the Championship.

'It is incredibly tight,' said Adams. 'I think some results over this weekend will make people raise their eyebrows. For me, it will be the team who put a run together, starting from now, who have a great chance. We have a home game on Friday night and we have to make sure it is us. There is not a lot we are doing wrong. We are confident that if we carry on like that we'll be okay.'
