Lambert unhappy at Holt decision

Published Add your comment

Norwich manager Paul Lambert felt Grant Holt's sending off was harsh but was delighted with his side's victory over Wolves.

The Canaries ended a four-game winless streak with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against the side bottom of the Barclays Premier League at Carrow Road. Matt Jarvis had given Wolves a surprise lead, although Holt equalised a minute later and put City in front with a penalty on the stroke of half-time before he was sent off late on.

Norwich now have a 14-point cushion over the drop zone, and Lambert said: "For the sending off, I thought the first one was a foul against him so I don't know what the referee has done there. The second one I think Grant has won the ball but you run the risk when you go to ground when you have already been booked. I just think it was a harsh sending off."
