Norwich boss Paul Lambert admits his players will "take their medicine" and move on after witnessing a disappointing 2-0 reverse at Blackburn on Saturday.
Norwich, already assured of their top-flight status next season, were well below-par at Ewood Park as Rovers stopped a five-match losing streak to boost their survival hopes.
Mauro Formica and Junior Hoilett finished superbly four minutes either side of half-time and the Canaries, despite coming close on numerous occasions, could not find a way back into the match.
Lambert expressed his disappointment with the nature of the goals scored against his side, and urged them to continue to seek to end a fine season on a high.
Lambert said: "We huffed and puffed and you've got to take your medicine and go again. I hope we will keep playing this season whether there is some meaning or not.
"The first goal was a poor goal from our point of view and for the second you can't let someone shoot from 25 yards and do nothing. You've got to get in a tackle or a block or something."
One bright spot for Lambert was the return of James Vaughan, who made his first start of the season after suffering from a crippling succession of injuries.
Lambert added: "The one positive thing to come out of the game was that James came back and did really well, because he's had some hard times with injuries.
"His injuries have been quite harsh at times so it's great for him to come back and play. I put a side out that I thought would go and win the game."
