The Toffees sacked manager Roberto Martinez on Thursday following the 3-0 loss at Sunderland which consigned Norwich to relegation.

Neil, who is yet to fully commit to the Canaries but has hinted at staying, said: "For me and hopefully for the squad, it's about pride.

"Not only that, for the amount of support the fans have shown us all season, particularly the away fans, we owe them to go out and do our very best.

"That's exactly what I would expect."

Put to him that his players might struggle to rise to the challenge, with relegation still raw, Neil was dismissive.

"If it is difficult for them to raise it, we've got some of the wrong people here," he said.

Norwich are 19th entering the final round of fixtures and Neil knows if they can finish above Newcastle the additional 'prize' money will be welcome.

He added: "The accountants will be delighted if we can win that."
