Players backing Norwich boss

Club captain Russell Martin says the Norwich players are fully behind under-fire manager Chris Hughton.

The Canaries were trounced 7-0 at Manchester City on Saturday, leaving them stuck in the Barclays Premier League's bottom three.

We are all behind the gaffer. That still remains the same.

We have not been good enough, the manager will get a lot of stick for that and so will we.

It is up to us to take some responsibility and accountability for what has gone wrong.

I am sure we're going to take (criticism) all week until the next game.

When we win we deserve the praise and by the same token after that we deserve what we get from the media, fans and ultimately ourselves. We are embarrassed and hurt.
