"I was happy with the character we showed to get back in the game, especially having gone behind to a goal from a set piece which was disappointing.

"Some draws are disappointing but this was a good point for us against a team that are the form side in the league at the moment."

Lampard feels Norwich could be among the contenders for promotion if they continue their good run which has seen them win four of the last six games.

He said: "It's a tight league and you can't expect anything and have to fight for every point. But on current form you'd say they look contenders.

"You could say that about a lot of teams we've played so far though. For us, it's still very much a work in progress but we are learning all the time."
