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."
