Bannan confident Villa fans will get behind Lambert

Barry Bannan believes Aston Villa fans will get behind new manager Paul Lambert.

The former Norwich City manager is expected to soon be appointed as Villa boss.

"Obviously last season wasn't the best for a team as big as us," Bannan told Sky Sports.

"We should have been way higher up the league and I think they see Lambert as an up-and-coming manager that is doing really well, so it is going to be a massive lift for everyone, the fans and the players as well.

"It is a fresh start for everyone again and hopefully in pre-season everyone is going to have a chance to prove their worth to the club."
