Wigan defender Gary Caldwell claimed the whole squad still believe they can beat the drop after coming from behind to draw 1-1 in their Barclays Premier League match at Norwich.

Victor Moses levelled in the 68th minute to cancel out Wesley Hoolahan’s early opener as the visitors dominated the second period.

“It was a sloppy start, we have to look at ourselves for that,” Caldwell said.

“We let Norwich into the game and gave them a goal start. We came out for the second half and had a right go at them but couldn’t get that second goal.

“We know on our day when we play well and work together as a team we’re not bad and we showed that today.

“We’ve still got great belief, we showed that today. We’re together as a unit, that can only be a good thing.’’

Moses felt his side deserved the victory for the second-half display.

“I thought we deserved the three points,’’ he said. “We had a lot of chances. In the first half they had the chances, in the second we were all over them.’’

  • Lambo is the arch-protagonist of Glasgonost. All the clarity of a smoggy day in Pollockshields. But we love him anyway. Our very own Gorbalschev.

  • It was a rubbish game...no one was all over anyone. It was lacking everything and I almost switched over, which I have never even contemplated under Lambert's tenure. Wigan were slightly better, but the game was still toilet.

  • Plus some slightly odd team selections in 3 of the 4 last games (Man U being the exception). Divide between smart, original thinking that takes the opposition by surprise and keeps them off balance, and making some strange tinkerman mistakes has narrowed of late. Why was Crofts on the pitch yesterday, and why did we have no width to both counter them and offer our most successful form of attack? And why oh why did we try and match Stoke at their own game? I'd be happy to have a few more of playing to our more obvious strengths for the next few matches.

  • I agree with the previous 5 postings. There is something amiss, and it needs sorting! If you can't see it at ground level Mr Lambert, then I suggest you watch it on TV!

  • It was a poor game. Yet the pundits on MOTD2 rated it best of the 3 sunday games! Or did I dream that? Or were they `avin` a giraarff? Wigan did deserve to win. How did they manage not to score at least 2 more? Still, as AC says, it`s a point. I think Lambo is getting even more taciturn. Come on lads, finish the season on a stylish "High". OTBC.

  • JimBob is right, from a NCFC point of view it was a rubbish game. What annoys me is that Lambert wasn't honest about the fact....at least not in public. I would have had far more respect for him had he admitted that Wigan deserved the 3 points. That we played well below the standard that has become expected of Norwich, and that we were lucky to come away with a point. For the first time ever, during a live game, I went and made myself a cup of tea during the game during the 2nd half. I know every team goes off the boil at some time during a season...........but 4 bad results on the run is enough Norwich.

  • It would appear that a bit of the sparkle has gone out of the team and there are persistent rumours of some sort of "Eastenders" intrigue in the dressing room. The Lambert-glasnost or Paulestroika approach to information management appears not to be helping.

  • i am sure we would have took this position at start of season 14points clear with 10 games left is better than we could ever had hoped for, this team has over achieved all season,even if we lose the next 10 and finish 17th,we still should not complain, wake up fans ,we are not a huge club,our wage bill is low,we will always be outside of top 10,i would be happy to see us finish 17th for the next 3 seasons, some people forget where we were just 2 seasons ago, if we had spent 40-50 million then i would understand all the complaining about a below par performance
