Norwich's Snodgrass absolves manager Hughton of blame

Norwich City winger Robert Snodgrass believes the players should take the blame for the clubs mediocre form this season.

The Canaries recorded their first victory since December 7 when they edged Hull City 1-0 on the weekend which was warmly welcomed by the Scotland international.

However, he feels the players need to do more in order to keep the media negativity towards manager Chris Hughton to a minimum.

"It is the players fault - it is not lack of effort, it is putting the ball in the net and that is the only thing that has been lacking," Snodgrass told the Eastern Daily Press.

"We have got so much determination and we want to do well, but you need to score - that is what wins the game. It is not through lack of chances or trying.

"If we had gone off 0-0 at full-time on Saturday, we would have the fans against us saying we had not done enough."
