Lambert convinced Villa in right shape for Cup semi

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says they're in the right frame of mind for their Capital One Cup semifinal second-leg clash with Bradford City.

Though Villa let slip a two-goal lead to draw with West Brom on Saturday, Lambert insists their first-half display was a much-needed morale boost.

"We will take a lot of confidence out of the West Brom game, that's for sure," he said.

"Yes, the lads were down but I had a chat with them and they know themselves the way they played there. They now need to replicate the first half and I'm pretty sure they will."
