Brilliant away form has propelled Norwich City to the Championship summit – but manager Neil Adams wants that form repeated in front of the Carrow Road faithful as well.

While City's 3-1 win at Blackpool made it four successive away wins for the first time since October 1996, Adams' side have drawn their last two home league games.

Charlton Athletic bring their unbeaten league record to the home of the Canaries this evening and Adams is hoping for an atmosphere similar to the last evening league match at Carrow Road, when City beat Blackburn 3-1.

'I'm pleased it's a night game in some respects; if it's anything like the previous game, the Blackburn game, it was a fantastic atmosphere – obviously we've got to make sure that happens,' Adams said. 'We want to make a fortress as the cliché goes. We're unbeaten but we want to win games.

'The two draws (with Bournemouth and Birmingham) were frustrating at the time because we felt we could have won both those games, so we'll go all out to win.'

The usual big crowd is expected tonight and Adams wants his players to put smiles on the faces of their loyal supporters.

'Of course with 27,000 fans here we want to send them home happy every time,' Adams added. 'We've got a fantastic away support as well and we're picking up wins. However we get the points, we know if we want to be successful you've got to pick up points at home and away.'
