    I said to my mate as he positioned himself for the free kick " he's standing too far over leaving his near post free" and look what happened. I'm not blaming him but he has to work on his positioning, he is still young and is learning. What I would say is that's two draws out of our last three at home which have been the result of two mistakes, we have to cut out the errors. Norwich did make it difficult for us but their attitude changed after they had scored. I think a lot of people would have taken 4pts out of 6 for our last two games, but I would have rather the results been the other way round, as I think Norwich are going to be in the dog fight with us. All we have to do now is go to Anfield and get a result. I can't understand why some fans booed at half time, they are obviously plastics.
    Think they were booing the ref, was never a free kick in the first place.
    I'd like to agree with you but having seen it a few times, Clyne doesn't get the ball and does get the player.

    I think we'd have been furious if it had been at the other end and the ref hadn't given it.

    Still, we're due a good ref, so maybe we'll get one at Anfield - for once.

Rickie Lambert says Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga doesn't need to apologise for his error in 1-1 draw with Norwich

First published in Sport

Saints striker Rickie Lambert said there was no need for goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga to apologise to his teammates following his blunder against Norwich.

Gazzaniga allowed a tame free-kick from Robert Snodgrass to sneak by him at the near post last night, handing the Canaries a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s.

Lambert, who had given the home side the lead, revealed that the 20-year-old cut a dejected figure in the dressing room after the match.

“He didn’t have to apologise to us,” said Lambert. “You could see he was disappointed.

“He has done really well the last few weeks and it was a just little lapse in concentration.

“He is more disappointed than us and these things happen. It is how you respond to it.”

The draw meant that Saints extended their unbeaten Premier League run to four matches.

However, they have also slipped back into the relegation zone.

Lambert admitted he was frustrated that the team had failed to seize the opportunity to win a third consecutive game.

“I am definitely frustrated not to get the three points,” said Lambert, whose goal marked his sixth strike of the season.

“I thought we played really well in the first half and I thought we were definitely going to win it.

“We’ve come in disappointed at half-time and felt we could have pushed on in the second half.

“We haven’t managed to do that so, yeah, I am disappointed.”
