'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lambert and Martinez both happy with a draw

City boss Paul Lambert says his side were well worthy of the point picked up against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on Saturday.

Wes Hoolahan's emphatic finish on the stroke of half-time following a mistake by Latics goalkeeper Al Habsi cancelled-out Ben Watson's 21st-minute penalty, and although Lambert admitted his side will need to tighten up defensively he left the north west a happy man.

'I think it's no more than we deserved,' he told canaries.co.uk after the game. 'We were well in the game, and to get a point away from home in any league, but mostly this one, is a decent start.

'I was delighted with a lot of things in the game, sometimes we were a bit open, and we might need to tighten up a bit, but the majority of the game I'm happy with.'


Wigan manager Roberto Martinez agreed that a draw was the fair result, telling wiganlatics.co.uk:

'In every game you play you sense an opportunity for three points, but in many ways today's fixture was always going to be a tricky one.

'It's the wrong time of the season to play a newly-promoted side; they're full of energy, bravery and it's fair to say that Norwich City played their game very well.

'Overall I feel although we had the better chances Norwich always caused a threat from their set plays and probably a draw was the fair result.'
