The task ahead for the new Norwich manager

Neil Adams will be thrown in at the deep end with the task of guiding Norwich through a perilous run-in after replacing the sacked Chris Hughton on Sunday night.

The 48-year-old Adams steps up from Under-18s coach, charged with keeping the Canaries out of the bottom three in a final month of the campaign which will see them face Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in succession.

Before then, Norwich travel to Fulham next Saturday, an opportunity to increase their cushion over the bottom three to eight points or a match which could see it shrink to two to leave them on the brink.

Adams was named first team manager by Norwich after they sacked Hughton and his backroom staff on the back of consecutive defeats, the latter a particularly disappointing 1-0 home loss to fellow strugglers West Brom on Saturday.
