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.

Hughton sacked: Canaries appoint Neil Adams as interim boss

Norwich have sacked Chris Hughton and his backroom staff after Saturday's defeat at home to West Brom.

Saturday's 1-0 home loss to fellow strugglers Albion proved the final straw for the Norwich board.

The Canaries announced their youth coach Neil Adams has been named first-team manager.

"Norwich City can confirm Chris Hughton, Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope have parted company with the club with immediate effect - and former Canary winger and FA Youth Cup-winning coach Neil Adams has been appointed as first team manager."

Norwich City's players have decided to refund the admission price paid by fans who travelled to watch last weekend's 3-0 defeat to Swansea City.

The Canaries put in another disappointing display in South Wales, slipping to their sixth consecutive away loss in the process.

A total of 899 supporters made the long trip to the Liberty Stadium.

“Our fans have been brilliant home and away this season and the numbers we get on the road are really impressive when you consider how far they have to travel up and down the country from Norfolk," club captain Russell Martin told the club's official website.

“All the lads really felt for the fans at the end of Saturday’s game, with most of them facing something like a six-hour drive home. Hopefully this will help them with the cost of travelling to our next away game at Fulham."

Hughton: "I thought we conceded three soft goals"

Norwich City fell to 15th in the Premium League after their 3-0 defeat at Swansea. They're only six points above the relegation zone.

Canaries' boss Chris Hughton said he came to Swansea with a positive formation and mindset, but that his side did not deserve to get anything out of the game.

Away from home, they have picked up only two points from the last 24, and are struggling to break that poor run.

"We find it very difficult away from home just to get that right formula," Hughton said.

"In a game when you're up against a team that's as good a passing team as Swansea are, you can't give them the amount of ball we gave them.

"I thought we conceded three soft goals. They showed great quality with what they have and real pace to get those goals, but it's that balancing act at the moment.

"If we're not good enough on the ball we've got to make sure we're not conceding goals and at the moment, away from home, we're not doing either."

Young Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy has joined League Two Southend United on loan.

Murphy, 19, was part of the Canaries team that won the FA Youth Cup last season. He'll stay at Roots Hall until the end of the season.

Murphy made seven appearances while completing a similar loan spell with Swindon Town earlier this season, soon after he made his first-team Norwich debut against Fulham in the FA Cup in January.
