Norwich City boss Paul Lambert felt they deserved their 1-1 draw with Fulham.

Portugal forward Orlando Sa had netted after just six minutes to put the visitors on course for a rare away win.

Norwich, though, continued to press and deep into five minutes of stoppage time, Canada striker Jackson nodded in Elliott Bennett's right wing cross.

"I thought it was no more than we deserved, especially in the second half, when we were relentless at times," the Norwich manager said.

"We played in fits and starts in the first half against a really good side, people underestimate Fulham, but in the second half we were very good.

"The crowd were a bit flat and expecting us just to win, which I think is wrong, the lads have given everything and the players need the crowd to help them along.

"In the second half, the lads dragged it up by themselves and were excellent.

"The crowd have to realise we have to manage the expectancy level.

"The early goal put us on the back foot, but the lads keep going, have got a great desire and it is all credit to them, because their effort was extraordinary."
