Lambert no doubts that Villa will avoid relegation

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert remains confident his team will avoid relegation again this season. Villa are now just four points above the Premier League drop zone, but Lambert has pointed to last season when they survived despite being in a far more precarious position.

"There are two ways to look at it - (the situation) will either take you under, or you thrive on the challenge," said Lambert.

"It's the same as last year. You either meet it head-on or it takes you under.

"We came through last year when we were in a worse position than now, so we will come through this one.

"If you look at it everybody is capable of beating everybody else, with one win taking you up the table, one defeat dropping you down. That is the way it is at the moment."
