Norwich boss Paul Lambert insists that Stoke are more than "just a physical side" ahead of their match.

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has said that Stoke City are more than "just a physical side" ahead of their match at Carrow Road.

The Scot, who achieved promotion with the Canaries at the end of last season, expects a tough match when the Potters visit in their first home game of the league campaign. However, he insists that his side will go all-out for the win.

"Stoke get wrongly accused of being over-physical," the Norwich boss told The Mirror.

"I watched them against Chelsea and they were excellent – and not just a physical side, they play the game.

"So, that shows the magnitude of the task we have. But we are at home and we have to try and win."

Norwich sit 11th in the Premier League table, after a draw at Wigan last weekend.
