Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has said defender Ryan Bennett was superb on his Premier League debut in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Fulham.

The 23-year-old had to wait two months to make his Canaries debut after signing from Peterborough United.

"I thought he was colossal, I really did," Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk.

“It went OK. I'd take playing a little bit worse and the team winning”

"The way he played the game was outstanding. For somebody as young as that in his first Premier League game shows you why we brought him here."

"I thought his whole game - tackling, reading the game and using the ball - the lad was brilliant," added Lambert.

"It was a big test to come into his first game of asking at a critical time. He was very, very good. I was delighted."
