Norwich boss Paul Lambert admits City's never-say-die fighting spirit will be a vital asset for the Canaries' twin pronged assault this season.

Lambert's men could move within 180 minutes of a prestige Wembley final date tonight in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy after Gary Doherty's last gasp Yeovil equaliser at the weekend maintained Norwich's League One play-off push.

Lambert insisted his side's Huish Park comeback is fresh evidence the Canaries have developed a new found resolve since the Scot's early season arrival.

"I can't say to you how a game is going to go before the kick off or how it will end up," he said.

"I have a group of lads that will work for each other and in the cold day of light they have been phenomenal, they really have.

"The run they have been on has been terrific. We only had a point when we came in here and we've 39 now, so it's not a bad return.

"We are doing great at the minute and the point (at Yeovil) might be massive towards the end of the season."

The City boss preferred to dwell on the positives yesterday after dissecting Norwich's latest West Country outing.

"Sometimes you can feel harsh on yourself. I know the lads physically can't win every game and Yeovil is a tough place to go," he said. "When they score in the 95th minute then you think this could be a defeat.

"The lads know my feelings on that but they showed a great desire to come back.

"We never started to play until they got the first goal. We were slow out of the blocks and against any team you have to start well and we never got going at the beginning.

"Yeovil deservedly went one up and then we thought we're in a game and we had to pull it back.

"Even at 2-1 I wasn't quite sure we would see the game through because it was so open and then they get one and then another you feel it might not be our day. But all credit, they came back strongly."
