City boss impressed with side's attacking verve

NEIL Adams lauded the Canaries’ creativity after they stormed to a 6-1 win over Braintree Town on Tuesday night.

City posed a threat all night as they comfortably saw off the challenge of their Skrill Conference Premier opponents in their friendly meeting at the Amlin Stadium.

“I’m really pleased with the performance. There were plenty of great combinations, a good few goals and we just played the way we ideally like to play,” he said.

“You have to take into consideration the standard of the opposition with all due respect, but you have to play what’s there and I thought we moved the ball very well through the thirds, got plenty of players forward and obviously scored goals tonight, so it’s very pleasing.”

Despite the one-sided nature of the scoreline, he admits Braintree had their moment.

“It was a good run-out for us, they gave us one or two problems,” he added.

“The pitch was in good condition, and that’s why you come to places like this – you know they’re going to have a decent pitch and a good standard of opposition.”

When asked about injury issues, he answered: “Alex Tettey had a problem with his knee which is why he didn’t play tonight, and Anthony Pilkington was sick. We’re hoping both will be ok in a couple of days.”
