Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is delighted for the fans after reaching the Capital One Cup semifinals.

Villa's travelling support were in full voice on a bitterly cold night at Norwich City and Lambert hopes to give them more to cheer about over the coming months as he aims to reconstruct the midlands club.

"I have never been to Wembley (as a player or manager), although I have been to watch a game," he said. "But it's not anything I have thought about, we have still got a couple of games to go.

"However, it gives the club something to look forward to. The fans deserve a pick-up as well.

"Whatever happens [for the semi-finals], Villa Park will be jam-packed. I will be more pleased with the pleasure the players get from it because I don't play the game any more."
