Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert hailed the home fans after their 1-1 raw with Fulham.

The Villa Park crowd stayed with the team throughout the ninety minutes, creating a cacophony of sound.

Lambert told Villa's website: "I have nothing but praise for the fans. It's a demanding place but you have to handle it.

"The noise and atmosphere...the crowd are right behind us.

"The team are bouncing off them. That's a powerful thing. That's what is happening at the minute."
