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

Late Fitness Tests For Clark & KEA

Paul Lambert has said that the Sunderland game was too much of a risk for Ciaran Clark and Karim El Ahmadi to play a part in and they will undergo late fitness tests ahead of the game against Norwich.

Speaking to the Official Site the manager explained:

'Ciaran Clark hurt his foot in training the other day. Karim got a groin strain the other day, too. It was too risky to play them. We'll see how they are later in the week.'

Lambert also talked about his pride at how the players handled the pressure against Sunderland, but he admits that game is gone now, that it has no bearing on Norwich, and without a positive result again Norwich it won't have meant much anyway.

'As far as I'm concerned the Sunderland game's gone. You move onto the next one, you can't live on that. Let that go and that's what I will try to do. Now we will go and try and win a game at Norwich.'

Lambert does add that especially recently, the team don't look like they deserve to belong down at the bottom of the league with how they are performing, but even with performances being for the most part improved we've still not picked up the results we want.

Good performances are heartening no doubt, but it's all about the results now.

Yeah, after Mondays' performance, I'd be happy if we played pants as long as we come away from Norwich undefeated...

Must win I think. Then I would start to believe we are safe. Anything else and it could well go down to the last game. Don't want that!

A win and a some goals to add to the GD column. Then the lads can relax a little and enjoy the last 2 games!
