Paul Lambert has said that Fabian Delph’s suspension will be a blow to the team, but it’s a chance for somebody else to stake their claim.
Speaking to the Official Site the morning after we all knew Delph would now miss the next two matches after picking up his 10th booking of the season, Lambert hailed his current form and admitted it was a blow to the team:
‘Fabian is playing extremely well. His misfortune is going to be someone else’s gain. I have a squad and now someone has to step up to the plate and do what he’s been doing.’
It may have been a silly booking but Lambert is old enough to know they happen, but we still get the ‘go again’ mantra:
‘You are pressing forward to try and get a goal back and things like that happen, you can’t cry about it, you go with the rules and go again.’
Lambert also says he’s surprised at how little Fabian has trained since he joined the club given the number of injuries he’s had, so he thinks it’s been good for him to have a run of fitness and games, and he thinks his performances have shown the increased confidence, and sharpness Delph has been able to get having remained injury free.
