Russell Martin looks 'onwards and upwards'

NORWICH City club captain Russell Martin told assembled media today that the squad is fully behind new boss Neil Adams and committed to the fight.

Martin expressed sadness at the departure of Chris Hughton, Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope - "three men who we respected and had good relationships with" - but acknowledged a run of inconsistent performances that he and the team are determined to end under new first-team manager Adams.

"It's a decision we have to accept obviously. There's always a tinge of disappointment when a manager is relieved of his duties because ultimately it means we haven't performed enough for them," he told Norwich City TV.

"But we're now fully behind Neil Adams. It's an exciting appointment for the club. We're looking forward to it and getting right behind him as we go into a big game on Saturday and looking to win the game.

"As players you have to move on quickly, whether you win, lose or draw. We're all looking forward to Saturday - in effect it's probably one of the biggest games in the career of some of the lads in there.

"We'll go there with a positive approach, see how Neil wants us to play, and go there looking for three points."
