"The lads have been fantastic. It was there for everybody to see as we defended really strongly and the lads put their bodies on the line. Collectively as a group they've been brilliant," Lambert told Sky Sports News.
"It's been well-documented that we keep going and all credit to the football club and the lads.
"It's only a success if we stay in the league. We have to try and stay in it and we've given ourselves a chance to try and do it but there is an awful long way to go."
The win has moved Norwich up to ninth in the Premier League table.
