Lambert eager to carry on scoring for Southampton

Southampton striker Ricki Lambert is eager to carry on scoring.

Lambert came off the bench and scored after just 66 seconds to net his tenth league goal of the season and help sink Norwich last week.

And the England forward, 32, is desperate to do it all again today when Mauricio Pochettino's out to face Tottenham in a top-flight encounter at White Hart Lane.

The former Bristol Rovers frontman said: "Trying my hardest to score for Southampton is the foremost thing on my mind whenever I step out on to the pitch. That is my job.

"It's great to be involved with England and, of course, I'd love to go to Brazil with the lads.

"But once I step on to the pitch I am simply focused on being alert and trying to get an opportunity to help my team.

"The pleasing aspect of that is that if I do score or help the team, it means I am playing well and doing the right sort of things to be in with a chance of being selected."
