Lambert out to cut out errors

The Canaries went down 1-0 at home to West Brom, who were gifted an
early foothold through Peter Odemwingie when the Nigeria striker
latched onto a stray backheader from Ritchie de Laet to stab past
rookie goalkeeper Declan Rudd, in for the suspended John Ruddy.
Norwich had plenty of possession, but failed to really test Baggies
keeper Ben Foster. Had Rudd not produced a fine penalty save in the
second half, following a soft foul given against Steve Morison on
Steven Reid, then the match would have been all but over with 15
minutes left. Lambert’s men, though, continued to battle and looked
to have a stoppage-time spot-kick missed by referee Mark Halsey
when James Vaughan, making his debut after a knee injury, was
caught by a stray elbow from Gabriel Tamas at a corner which left
the striker needing hospital treatment for a badly-gashed lip.
Despite now having picked up just two points from the opening four
games, Lambert sees no major cause for concern. He said: “There is
no magic formula. The lads will be ready for Bolton next week. If
we keep playing the way we are, we will be okay. “At this level,
you have got to be really clued in at both ends of the pitch, and
we are still learning. “There are individual errors, and at this
level you can’t switch off. “We have to learn as a group that any
mistake will get punished in a minute.” Lambert added: “Even when
we have won, I never get too high, and never too low when we have
not, hopefully the players are the same. “I have never had to pick
them up since I have been here, so I don’t think that will happen.”
Norwich showed plenty of endeavour again yesterday, but unlike West
Brom with Odemwingie and Ireland forward Shane Long, the Canaries
lacked a cutting edge in the final third. Substitute Morison – on
target for Wales during the international break – planted a late
header wide from six-yards.
