They are desperate to get the game under way and try to rectify our performance at the weekend
And Liverpool striker Lambert, who scored his first Reds goal in south-east London at the weekend, said the players are desperate to put things right.
“We lost the individual battles and it wasn’t good enough,” said Lambert.
“There wasn’t anyone in a Liverpool shirt who was good enough and it was wholly down to the players on the pitch.
“I do believe it is a lack of confidence at the minute but that will come back. It is not going ideally but it is up to the players on the pitch to ‘dog’ the performances out.
“Whatever the result in any game we have to perform better than we did at the weekend.
“It is totally down to the players. They are desperate to get the game under way and try to rectify our performance at the weekend.
“Win or lose we have to put in a performance of the standard of a Liverpool team.”
