Following their win over Blackburn last week The Foxes hauled themselves out of the bottom three with a stunning away victory but Adams is keeping his feet on the ground about the size of the task that lies ahead for his side.
Adams said: "We have been striving to do that for a few weeks now but we've got to be realistic and realise that all we've done is win a game of football here today.
"I asked the boys to go out there today and stick their chests out and be proud. It's a fantastic stadium and all I asked of them is that they learned their lessons from the Wolves game."
Jordan Stewart opened the scoring for Leicester as Adams tinkered with his selection to accommodate Riccardo Scimeca.
"Jordan's been playing at left back for us recently but we moved him forward today so we could accommodate Riccardo Scimeca and he's come up with a fantastic goal for us."
Paul Dickov was awarded a penalty early in the second half which brought about a chorus of boos from the fans who used to sing his name but Adams defended his Scottish star and said there was no question Sylvain Distin was right to be punished.
"From where I was sitting it was a definite penalty," he added. "My only gripe is, if the referee thought he threw a hand in his (Dickov's) face then why didn't he send him off?
"But I can't have too many complaints about the game. People keep wanting to write us off but they shouldn't because I've got quality in that dressing room, even if some of them are getting on a bit."
Dickov was also adamant that referee Mike Riley was right to award a penalty against Distin: "Yes, it was a penalty because he pushed me in the face.
"It's nothing that doesn't go on in any game every week, but the referee was right there and he's decided that it was a penalty."
