Lambert lauds hat-trick hero Holt

Norwich manager Paul Lambert hailed skipper Grant Holt as "unplayable" after his hat-trick destroyed Ipswich in the 4-1 victory at Carrow Road.The striker scored twice in the first half, sandwiching an equaliser from Tractor Boys defender Damien Delaney, who was sent off in the 37th minute for a professional foul on Holt.Roy Keane's men rarely threatened an equaliser in the second half and, after Holt completed his treble in the 76th minute, substitute Wes Hoolahan added a fourth two minutes later.Holt dovetailed effectively with Chris Martin and Lambert enthused: "I thought Grant was unplayable at times."It was a superb performance. He was always harassing people and not letting them settle and he stuck his chances away too."He is never going to be a striker with great finesse but when he's playing like a typical old-fashioned number nine he is brilliant."
