Neil Adams accepts Norwich City supporters have every right to be angry after the latest 2-1 stoppage time defeat at Nottingham Forest, but the Canaries' boss is vowing to get the club's Championship season back on track.

City slumped to 10th place ahead of the international break after a late salvo from Michail Antonio and Britt Assombalonga cancelled out Jonny Howson's first half goal at the City Ground.

Norwich have now won just two league games in the last 10, but Adams insists he is up for the fight.

'It's understandable they are not happy. We want to win as badly as those fans,' he said. 'I know what they are like. They follow us through thick and thin. We haven't won a game again. I know how they are feeling, I know they are hurting. No-one is hurting more than me. I can assure you of that.

'I am desperate to get back to winning ways as quickly as possible for those fans.'

Midfielder Gary O'Neil admits there is no hiding place if the Canaries want to get back in the Championship promotion race after slipping six points behind last season's play-off losers Derby County.

'It's a massive concern for us, but there's no place to hide and we are not going to give up,' he said. 'We're not going to say 'Oh well, we keep conceding goals so we can't get promoted'. We are going to dig in, try to rectify it and the next time we come out, hopefully we perform the same, pass the ball as well as we did, work as hard as we did and then just make better decisions defensively.

'It's a tight league, though. I think the fact we've lost so many games recently is alarming - and the manner of the goals we are losing as well, but everyone is together. That means we will look forward to the next game, and go again.'
