EASY! EASY! EASY! EASY!

Norwich looked very poor, on paper they have a good side, but they didn't play with any desire, I think Worthington should be on for the sack, someone new is needed to stir things up I think, because it really was an easy win for us yesterday, and it's the 1st time I've said that all season

Phil Brown knows what it is like to be under-fire and has jumped to the defence of Norwich City boss Nigel Worthington.

Brown felt the heat as Derby County won only once in 15 matches and dropped down the Championship.

Seven points from the last nine has made everybody feel a little better but the Rams victory over Norwich at the weekend, courtesy of two Andrew Davies goals, has left Worthington deep in the mire.

Some of the Norwich fans who travelled to Pride Park on Saturday chanted "we want Worthy out" towards the end of the 2-0 defeat.

But Brown is confident Worthington can turn things around.

"Nigel did a wonderful job in taking Norwich up to the Premiership and now they are having a diffcult time back in the Championship," he said.

"Clubs can find it tough after being relegated and Norwich now have to get to grips with the Championship again.

"Nigel needs to steady the ship and I have no doubt he can do that. He has not become a bad manager overnight.

"He's having a difficult time of it right now but he will come again."

Norwich are down in 18th having taken only four points from the last 15.

Worthington is beginning to suspect last season's Premiership campaign has "messed up" his players.

"It seems some players' heads are still in the Premiership when they should be rolling their sleeves up and working hard in the Championship," he said.

"Some of them are looking after their own backs when they should be asking themselves whether they're earning their corn.

"The fans are entitled to their opinion about me and although it's not nice to hear, I'm the manager so I'm at the head of it all.

"Some people seem to have very short memories, but I expect criticism from the fans.

"This is the most frustrating period in the five years I've spent at the club and now we all need to pull together if we're going to move forward."

Derby have jumped above Norwich and the immediate future on the pitch looks brighter for the Rams than the Canaries on the evidence of their clash a few days ago.

Norwich are at Crewe on Saturday while Derby entertain Preston, who are basking in an unbeaten run of 11 games and have climbed from 13th to sixth.

Three matches without defeat has lifted the Rams' spirit and Brown knows the importance of the next fixture.

"We will go into the Preston game with our tails up but we know it is vitally important we follow the good performance and result against Norwich with another," he said.
