Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is confident going to Norwich City for their Capital One Cup clash.

Lambert knows the bigger picture for Villa is that the prospect of a semi-final appearance will leave the Birmingham club with a decided spring in its step.

"I believe we're playing very well," he said. "We would love to be winning more games and score but the only teams to turn us over at the moment are the two Manchester clubs. Norwich are going really fine themselves but we'll be threat, that's for sure."
