City are looking for a new goalkeeping coach after the departure of Paul Crichton.
Crichton was at the reserve game against Ipswich at Carrow Road on Wednesday, but had left the club by the time they travelled to Brighton.
"It was done amicably and it has happened," said Lambert. "It's one of those situations which happened. We have to get a goalkeeping coach in one way or another."
Lawrence Batty, who was Lambert's goalkeeping coach during his time at Wycombe, helped out on Saturday. Batty is the man former Canaries stopper Robert Green cites as one of his inspirations when he watched him keep goal for Woking.

"We had to get somebody in pretty quickly to give us a hand and Lawrence was my goalkeeping coach with Wycombe and came to play-offs with us and I know what he's like and we had to get somebody in really, really quickly who could give us a hand," Lambert said.
"Lawrence was really kind and has given up what he had to do. Paul did great with me but that's the decision."

Crichton is one of football's most-travelled players, having moved more than 20 times, including loans, since starting his career at Nottingham Forest.
He had a spell at Carrow Road as a player, between 2001 and 2004, but with Green ahead of him played just six times.
He left Brighton to join City as a coach a year ago, replacing Tommy Wright as part of Bryan Gunn's backroom staff.
