I am not going to let anyone try and provoke and bully my team says Paul as he praises players

Paul Lambert had no regrets after being sent to the stands before half-time and praised his side for going toe to toe with Norwich for long periods.

The Canaries took the points with a brace from Teemu Pukki in the second-half after Onel Hernandez had opened the scoring in the first two minutes.

“We came here and stood up to the atmosphere, stood up to the fight. We were in the ascendancy but it was a mistake for the second goal,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“The effort and the commitment was first class. I can’t praise the lads enough. We have young lads, loan players and they are giving everything for the Club.

“I have not won what I did if I wasn’t a fighter. I am not going to let anyone try and provoke and bully my team.

“There were things going on there that I wasn’t going to accept. I’m not a choirboy, never have been. That will never leave me. There were a few digs at me. No problem. We will see what happens.

“I’m not apologising for it. I’ve got no regrets and I’d do the same again. You need that nastiness sometimes - in a good way. I played with some top players and they all had it. Not arrogance. Not aloofness but they would stand up to the fight.”
