Ahead of their clash with Southampton at Villa Park, Lambert said:
"Nobody wants to hear criticism, regardless of who you are, but you have to take it.
"If results don't go your way, you expect to be shouted at or gestured at.
"The main thing is the players and the supporters.
"We're doing everything we can to try and turn the whole thing around.
"But the players will need the supporters as well to drive it over that line to go and win a game."
