Norwich 3-0 Ipswich

IPSWICH boss Paul Lambert insisted he had no regrets after being sent from the touchline as Norwich went two points clear at the top with a derby victory.

Ex-Canaries manager Lambert was sent to the stands along with home coach Chris Domogalla by referee Peter Bankes following a first-half flare-up. After Onel Hernandez’s second-minute opener Teemu Pukki struck twice to take his tally to 20 league goals for the season.

Ipswich are now nine points from safety but Lambert defended his conduct: ‘Do I regret it? No I don’t,’ he said.

‘I am not going to stand back and watch when people are running 30 yards to try and get one of my players booked.

‘I stood my ground, then a steward put his hands on me and I objected. As for the police officer, I had no problem with him.’
