Norwich City Sack Chris Hughton

Chris HughtonFollowing the defeat on Saturday to fellow relegation strugglers West Bromwich Albion, tonight (Sunday) Chris Hughton has been given his marching orders by Premier League club Norwich City and he has been immediately replaced by youth team coach and former player Neil Adams.

Hughton took over the Canaries in June 2012 after being tempted away from Birmingham City (with Norwich paying a rumoured £2m compensation package to Birmingham City). During his first season in charge at Carrow Road he led the side to a respectable 11th place finish however the side have struggled this season and they now sit just five points and one place clear of the relegation zone with x points with five games left to play with upcoming fixtures featuring the likes of Liverpool (H), Manchester United (A), Chelsea (A) and finally Arsenal (H).

Neil Adams made over 200 appearances for Norwich during the late 1990s but he has no managerial experience of a first-team squad and will have his work cut out for him to ensure Premier League survival for the club.
