Neil Adams praises City's determination in securing win at Bloomfield Road.

NORWICH City's fourth away league win in a row was thoroughly merited, according to manager Neil Adams.

The Canaries beat Blackpool 3-1 at Bloomfield Road to move to the summit of the Sky Bet Championship table.

It was another determined display from City, who had to recover from conceding the game's first goal, but Adams says they were worthy winners.

"They got a goal within the first minute of the second half but the players didn't panic. We got the three goals and we deserved to win the game," he told Norwich City TV after the final whistle.

"If you would have offered me the first half performance, where we dominated the game, and scoreline, I would have taken it.

"It's another fantastic result for us. It wasn't a classic, but for a manager who has had a few palpitations in games this season it was perfect for us!

"Your home form keeps you in divisions, your away form wins you league titles and promotions."

Josh Murphy sealed the three points with his first senior goal and Adams was delighted with the youngster's impact.

"We just thought 'we want to win the game'. I think it was 1-1 when we brought him on," he added.

"Wes (Hoolahan) had done nothing wrong, he was looking lively but we needed a bit more pace. He stretched them that little bit more.

"They were narrowing in and you could see it maybe petering out into a draw, but we didn't want that. We wanted to win."
