A small but vocal group of protesters calling for Norwich City manager Nigel Worthington to go gathered outside Carrow Road before today's match against QPR.

Many seemed to be season ticket holders who had renewed their season tickets this time, but claimed they might not do so again if the under-pressure Canary boss stays.

Among the protesters was season ticket holder Kiv Kiwerski, 47, who said his loyalty would only last so long.

“From Worthington's after match interviews it's clear he's not been watching the same matches we have,” he said. “So many times this season the team has failed to turn up. Norwich used to have a reputation for playing good football, but not this season.

“I have never protested before, because you always felt we were trying to play good football, but I am now. There will come a day when people will think twice about renewing their season tickets.”

Joanna Sellex, 46, of Thorpe Hamlet, said: “I have supported Norwich since I was nine, so I'm not going to give my season ticket up, but I still want Worthy out. He has made so many disappointing signings. But the Board is so loyal to him I think he will stay.”

Her son Jonathan, a student at Bath University, travels the 320 miles to Norwich every home game to watch his team.

He said: “The football we play is terrible. All we do is hoof the ball upfield, but we don't have a targetman. What's the point of getting players as loan signings when you are not going to play them?

“We are all loyal to this club we love but we don't love him. From the amount of fans we get, especially away fans, we deserve something better.”

t LATEST SCORE: Norwich were 0-1 down at half time thanks to a Gareth Ainsworth goal at the very end of the half - a goal which came very much against the run of play.
