Norwich boss not getting carried away

Published Add your comment

Norwich manager Paul Lambert is refusing to count his chickens despite watching his side take another giant stride towards automatic promotion with a 2-1 win over Stockport.

First-half goals from Anthony McNamee and Grant Holt set up a 15th home win in 16 matches to keep the hosts nine points clear of third-placed Millwall with just six games left to play.

"It's another three points and another one out of the way but I'm not looking any further ahead than our next game," said Lambert. "We are in a position to do well but there is a lot of football still to be played yet."

He added: "I'm delighted with the response from the lads after Friday (3-1 defeat at Tranmere), they were top-class. Stockport came here with nothing to lose and made it very tough for us but we got the result we needed. Results are all that matters at this stage of the season, no-one remembers the performances."

Lambert was also full of praise for match-winner Holt, who became the first Norwich player since Ron Davies in 1963/64 to score 30 goals in a single season.

He added: "Grant's done superbly for me and superbly for this football club. He's had a massive season and to get 30 goals is a wonderful achievement, no matter what level you play in."
