I won't go defensive - Lambert

Paul Lambert has promised Norwich fans that he will continue to field an attacking team in their Premier League survival bid.

The Canaries chief was delighted as the side maintained their position in mid-table following an entertaining 4-2 win against Newcastle at Carrow Road on Saturday thanks to respective braces from Steve Morison and Grant Holt.

The opposition's two goals also means that Norwich have not recorded a clean-sheet in the top flight, but Lambert feels that is the price he must pay to play a side intent on attacking the opposition. And, he vowed to the fans that he and his assistant Ian Culverhouse have no intentions of adopting a more defensive approach.

He told BBC Radio Norfolk: "I've never been brought up playing negative football and Ian's the same - we try to win games.

"The game's all about winning. You have to get results to stay in a job."

He added: "The group I've got here have done that more often than not. The crowd come every week to watch us and you owe it to them to go on the front foot."
