Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert fears more fans abuse at their awards night this week.

Asked whether he would be attending the ceremony at Villa Park on Tuesday evening, Lambert, whose job is at risk, hesitated before putting a brave face on the situation.

"Yeah, well, I don't... I intend to because I've just bought a bow tie," he said. "I don't want to pay three pounds for a bow tie and not turn up."
