Norwich Boss Expecting Tough Game Against Swans

Norwich Boss Expecting Tough Game Against Swans

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert is expecting a tough match on Saturday as he looks to get his first home win of the season.

Brendan Rodgers' Swansea City side will go to Carrow Road with plenty of confidence after last weekend's superb 4-0 win against Preston North End, while the Canaries beat Scunthorpe United 1-0 at Glanford Park.

Norwich lost their first home game against Watford 3-2, as former Swansea target Danny Graham scored a brace to help the Hornets to victory.

Lambert says home form is 'vital':

'Your home form is vital, the more home games you can win, it makes it that little bit easier when you go away from home.



You have to try and take care of your home games and then anything you get away is a bonus. There is no doubt how vital it is.'


He told Norwich City's Official site that he is expecting a tough match against a good passing side:

'The only stat that really interests me is whether we win. If a team can pass the ball 700 times, but get beat 4-0 then it is irrelevant.

'They definitely play football the right way and this is a really tough game there's no doubt about it. They will pass it around, so we have to be ready for it and also implement our own game.

'I never really worry about the opposition, I know they had a really good result last week but as I've said before we are in this league for a reason and all our hard work last year has earned us the right to play them.'

'You're going to have to play them at some stage whether it's the beginning middle or the end of the season, we're going to have to play these sorts of teams.

'The cup you make no apologies for because you want to progress as best you can and we now have tough games ahead in the league. But we've earned the right to do it and we'll enjoy it, but the only way you start to do that is when you're winning and that's what we'll try and do on Saturday.'
