Lambert convinced suffering Villa fans still with him

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is convinced the supporters are with him after defeat at home to Wigan Athletic.

Despite their dire situation, Lambert paid tribute to the Villa fans.

He said: "Since I've been here the fans have been brilliant with myself and the team.

"I never criticise the crowd here at Villa Park because they are behind the team. All we can do is our very best for the club. The fans have been brilliant and have gone away as hurt as we are. We have to stick together.

"I've been beaten up badly both as a player and as a manager. It happens. It was disappointing to lose to Wigan as it was an opportunity to climb the table.

"Spurs and Chelsea are fine teams but Wigan was an opportunity to pull away, especially at home.

That is the disappointment. To be turned over 3-0 at home certainly hurts everyone."
