Lambert laments below-par Canaries

Paul Lambert expressed his disappointment with the nature of the goals scored against his side in the 2-0 defeat to Blackburn.

Mauro Formica and Junior Hoilett boosted Blackburn's Barclays Premier League survival chances against a lacklustre Canaries outfit. Formica volleyed home a 40th-minute opener and Hoilett fired home from 25 yards early in the second half.

Lambert said: "We huffed and puffed and you've got to take your medicine and go again. I hope we will keep playing this season whether there is some meaning or not.

"The first goal was a poor goal from out point of view and for the second you can't let someone shoot from 25 yards and do nothing. You've got to get in a tackle or a block or something."

One bright spot for Lambert was the return of James Vaughan, who made his first start of the season after suffering from a crippling succession of injuries.

Lambert added: "The one positive thing to come out of the game was that James came back and did really well, because he's had some hard times with injuries. His injuries have been quite harsh at times so it's great for him to come back and play. I put a side out that I thought would go and win the game."
