Norwich City boss Lambert remains positive

Norwich boss Paul Lambert insists there is no need to panic after watching his side crash 3-0 in today's televised Championship promotion shoot out at Swansea.

City's lead over the play-off chasing pack was cut to just one point after superb first half strikes from Fabio Borini and Mark Gower put Swansea in command before Tamas Priskin added a third deep in stoppage time at the Liberty Stadium.

Lambert is convinced his men will respond in positive fashion against Watford on Tuesday as they bid to get their promotion push up and running after a first defeat in ten league games.

'The game was lost in the first half but I felt we should have scored before they got the free kick,' he said. 'The free kick you just have to hold your hand up - it was a brilliant free kick. The second goal was a bit disappointing because we could've shut the ball down a bit quicker. The pleasing thing was we never wilted.

'I'm disappointed to lose but we're sitting second still. They are a very good side but so are my own group. It was a hard game for us but I am sure Brendan (Rodgers) would say the same.

'I'm confident they'll give me everything again on Tuesday. I can't dictate results. We'll get them ready for another tough game but once they cross that white line its up to them.'
