Norwich City boss Neil Adams delighted to stop home slide

15 December 2014

Norwich City manager Neil Adams was delighted to see smiles back on faces at Carrow Road as his side finally produced an emphatic home performance to hammer 10-man Huddersfield Town 5-0.

The Canaries had won just one in seven in their own back yard before this fixture but put that poor record firmly to bed as they ran riot after the break to move to within two points off the play-off zone.

"We have dropped too many points at home, there's no doubt about that," said Adams. "Away from home we have done okay, but here we have drawn five games and that has cost us.

"It was important today that we let everyone know what we are capable of. Yes it was against 10 men but as we have seen so many times in the past that is not always easy. You have got to go out and do it.

"In the end it was reminiscent of the flowing football we played earlier in the season and we can now go to Derby full of confidence next weekend. We'll be going there to win, that will never change.

"We set the team up to be solid, as we did at Wigan last week, and now it's six points in two games, and two clean sheets.

"We were solid and structured throughout. We didn't want to make it difficult for ourselves by giving the opposition a head start and in the end if went perfectly to plan."
