Lambert revels in win over former employers

Published Add your comment

Norwich boss Paul Lambert felt his side deserved their comprehensive 5-0 victory over former club Colchester.

Lambert had led Colchester to a 7-1 victory at Carrow Road back in August, before controversially quitting to take charge of the Canaries soon after. The two clubs fell out over the issue and the Us are still pressing for compensation from their East Anglian rivals over the matter and Lambert was given a hot reception at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

"We were worthy winners," said the Canaries boss, whose side are now just three points behind League One leaders Leeds.

"The lads were brilliant, considering all that has gone on and everything has been said. I knew it was going to be like that.

"I've played up in Glasgow as everybody knows but it wasn't about me. I'm pretty sure that it was a sweet win for the fans. They have been exceptional and I know how quickly that can change in football. You know you're not going to last forever but we'll do our utmost to try and get this club up."
