Villa boss Lambert: Victory not about Norwich revenge

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists victory at Norwich City was not about revenge.

Lambert has now won twice on his old stomping ground following Villa's Capital One Cup quarter-final win in December.

"Chris Hughton is a terrific manager and this is a terrific club," said Lambert, who put up with a bit of well-natured banter from the home supporters behind the dugout.

"I had a great rapport with the fans when I was here and it was a really great time.

"Nothing should blight the relationship I had with the Norwich crowd, but things happen, it got sour and you have to move on, that's football."
