Hutton urges Villa fans to get behind Lambert

Aston Villa fullback Alan Hutton has urged fans to get behind manager Paul Lambert.

Hutton struck in victory over Leicester City to lift the pressure off his gaffer.

"I hope it has eased the pressure on him - we've got a lot of hard games out of the way," Hutton said.

"I understand the fans' frustrations. They come and want to see you winning and playing good football but we're are five unbeaten now and we want to keep getting better and better.

"If you look at our squad, when we have everyone fit, we rival most teams. Players like Fabian Delph and Ron Vlaar are coming back so we'll have good competition for places.

"I don't see why we can't push up a few more places in the league."
