Gunny says relax
City players won't be subjected to the hairdryer treatment much loved by Bryan Gunn's first manager, Sir Alex Ferguson. The Canaries manager is confident his players have the honesty to hold their hands up to mistakes - and says it will help retain the relaxed atmosphere in the camp.

City's 3-3 draw at Wolves in midweek was punctuated by errors in defence and attack - with Darel Russell and Jamie Cureton the 'guilty' parties.
Russell's slip helped Wolves to their third goal, after Cureton had missed two golden opportunities at the other end.

“It was good play to get into those areas and strikers have got to be getting themselves into position and keep getting themselves into position,” said Gunn.
“That's something that I said to Jamie and all we ask of them is honesty.

“In the dressing room Jamie held his hands up, he was disappointed, he felt he'd let his team-mates down.
“Darel Russell was disappointed with his slip for one of the goals as well.
“So I didn't need to dig anyone out - they came in and they'd taken responsibility for themselves.”
Gunn and his assistant Ian Butterworth - who played under Brian Clough at Nottingham Forest - may have been on the receiving end during their playing days, but are happy to do it their way.
“I think when we look back on our days and sitting in the dressing room there was a lot of ranting and raving and sometimes a lot of home truths came out, but I think the players taking responsibility for their own mistakes is something that we're quite happy with,” Gunn said. “I didn't have to say anything after the game and because they haven't had the hairdryer treatment or anything like that we hope that they'll be more relaxed when the opportunity comes up again on Saturday.”
