Lambert relieved by Southampton victory

Southampton striker Rickie Lambert has told of his relief after his side nearly threw away a 3-0 lead to draw with Norwich City, but eventually came through 4-2, Sky Sports has reported.

Lambert scored the second for the Saints, rolling the ball past John Ruddy just seconds after coming on as a substitute. That goal added to Morgan Schneiderlin’s early opener, with Lambert then providing the assist for Jay Rodriguez to make it 3-0.

The home side appeared to be cruising until the closing stages, when their struggling visitors scored twice in the space of a minute, thanks to Johan Elmander and Robert Snodgrass, who both capitalised on defensive errors.

And as Norwich searched for an unlikely equaliser, the were caught on the break deep into added time as Sam Gallagher grabbed his first Southampton goal.

After the game, Lambert admitted that he was relieved by the result. He said: "Within a minute we'd gone from dominating the game completely to them trying to equalise, that's what happens in football."

"It was a strange game. It would have been very interesting in the dressing room if we'd managed to lose a three-goal lead, but we won, that's all that matters. It was a good display apart from the last five or ten minutes."
