Lambert urges Villa fans not to panic

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists there's no reason to panic after defeat at Stoke City.

Villa have now lost three games in a row but manager Paul Lambert was encouraged by their performance, especially in the first half.

He said: "I never thought we deserved to lose that one. The last two performances against Fulham and Manchester United, we didn't deserve anything, but that one I thought we deserved something.

"We got ourselves back into the game in really strong condition. I couldn't fault the lads for their effort and the way we started. I thought we were the better team in the first half. We looked threatening. I'm disappointed to lose but that was better from us."
