Manager reacts to 3-0 victory at Carrow Road

NEIL Adams was delighted with his side’s approach to breaking down 10-man Watford as they cruised to a 3-0 win at Carrow Road.

Joel Ekstrand’s 2nd minute red card resulted in the Canaries’ having a numerical advantage for nearly the entire contest, and they took advantage with goals from Bradley Johnson, Lewis Grabban and Alex Tettey securing victory.

“We’ve seen many times when a man gets sent off, it can actually go against you because the other team sits in and it’s difficult, but I thought our application today was exactly what you need facing the situation what we had,” Adams told Norwich City TV after the game.

“Patience and possession were the key. The possession in the second half at Wolves was very similar to today; we just had the end product as well which was very pleasing. We scored three, but we could have scored double that.

“It’s great to be answering questions as a winning Norwich City manager. I’m delighted with today’s performance and obviously the result.”

Adams also praised the standard of his team’s three goals, all of which came from outside the box.

“The two chips were top drawer, top class finishes, and then Alex goes and drills one in at the near post, so they were three really high class goals,” he added.

“We had many opportunities – we got in behind the Wolves back line time after time and we could have had more goals if you want to be greedy.

“Once the second goal went in it was game over. It was a really good performance, we were very comfortable – yes it was against ten men, but as I said it’s not easy to break down ten men unless you’ve got the quality to do it.”
