Nigel Worthington will keep making changes after losing his first game as Leicester boss.
Nigel Worthington aims to continue making changes after his first game as Leicester City boss ended with a 2-1 defeat to former club Norwich City.
Darren Kenton provided Worthington with the perfect start by scoring inside the opening minute for the Championship strugglers.
But a penalty from Robert Earnshaw and a Gareth McAuley own goal condemned Leicester to defeat in Worthington's first match in charge.
The ex-Norwich boss replaced Rob Kelly in midweek and accepts it will take time for his ideas to become ingrained in the players.
"We made a great start and we were doing everything we had spoken about in the week," said Worthington.
"We had tempo and sharpness, but it was always going to be difficult to maintain that level.
"When you come into a new club it is difficult because every manager has his own methods.
"Rob was here before and he is a good manager, but I needed the players to be more physical and fitter.
"To change things so dramatically to what I would like is impossible given the timeframe, but this has gone and now we move on."
Earnshaw was making his first appearance for over three months after a groin injury and Norwich boss Peter Grant was hoping to avoid bringing the striker on.
Grant said: "He was only on the bench to make up the numbers because of the number of injuries we have.
"I was hoping I wouldn't have to bring him on.
"I am glad he is back around the squad, but he is still short of match fitness - although the way he celebrated his goal it is obvious he is getting nearer."
