Two goals in the last 12 minutes from Chris Martin and substitute Cody McDonald snatched the points in Tuesday night's encounter at Bescot and sunk a brave Saddlers side who had led through Troy Deeney's ninth goal of the season. Lambert, who praised the performance of midfielder Wes Hoolahan, was delighted for the 1,365 travelling Canaries fans who got right behind the team when their great run of six successive wins seemed to be on the point of ending. Norwich are now unbeaten in 15 games and Lambert said: "Walsall are a good side and this is one of the toughest places to come and get a result. Not many teams will win here." He added: "We had to win and the lads did well on a difficult pitch, especially after beating Brentford with 10 men on Saturday, and we had to come here and go again. "Wes Hoolahan was outstanding. He is a brilliant footballer."
