Cruel home defeat followed by a superb away win for City's youngsters

EBOU Adams says Norwich City's Under-23s have felt the full range of emotions over the past week following mixed fortunes in two separate knock-out competitions. 

The young Canaries suffered disappointment last Friday when they were beaten by Sunderland in the Premier League International Cup, but bounced back just days later to reach the Premier League Cup semi-finals with a superb victory away to Liverpool on Monday. 

Adams was named Man of the Match in the former before going on to score the winner against the Merseysiders, and exclusively told "It was a great performance from the lads, especially coming back from Friday's defeat.

"That was a tough one to take and to win the next game is a credit to everyone. We put a performance together where we attacked and defended well, which paid off against a strong Liverpool side.

"We probably should have won by a few goals but we're through to the semi-final where we've got another chance. Hopefully, with a second bite of the cherry, we can get through to the final."

City's prize for a fine victory over the Reds is a final four trip to Reading's Madejski Stadium at the end of this month, with Adams determined to play his part in taking the team past the Royals.

"The boys were really up for the last semi-final and to lose was a bitter pill to swallow", the midfielder explained.

"It would be a great achievement for the boys to get to the final. Everyone know how it feels to lose a semi-final now and nobody wants to go through that again.

"We're looking forward to it. We want to put in another good performance to make sure we get through."
