West Brom striker Rickie Lambert is 'desperate' to get a chance to end his goal drought when the Baggies face Norwich City on Saturday.

The 33-year-old is yet to score for Tony Pulis' team and has not started in any of Albion's last four Premier League games.

Lambert is behind Salomon Rondon, a £12million summer signing from Zenit St Petersburg, in the current pecking order ahead of this weekend's trip to Norfolk.

'I'm more desperate than anyone else. It's what I get paid for,' said Lambert, who signed from Liverpool for £3m in the summer, speaking to BBC West Midlands.

'I'm just going to keep working hard and hope it comes this Saturday. I know there's more to this role under Pulis than just scoring goals.

'You get asked a lot more defensively than I've had in the past, but it's something you have to get used to and I'm trying to get as fit as I can. He's decided to go with Salomon Rondon at the minute, but I'm on the bench waiting for my chance.'
