Lambert remains confident
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert felt his side were unlucky to lose at Fulham and is confident results will improve.
Villa suffered late heartache at Craven Cottage as Chris Baird grabbed the only goal of the game on 84 minutes to seal a win for the hosts.
Lambert's side are just two points clear of the relegation zone and have managed just six goals in eight games.
However, Lambert was pleased with the performance on Saturday and felt his side deserved at least a point at Fulham.
The former Norwich boss insists results will improve as the season progresses and is confident his side can push away from the bottom three.
"There were a lot of good things there. I am disappointed to lose but I can't be too disheartened with the way they played," Lambert said. "It is important they don't get their heads down. I have told them that. They will get knocks along the way and it is how you bounce back.
"I think they will be fine. I think they are mentally strong enough to handle it. I really don't (think we are far away from getting the results we want).
"We were unlucky against Newcastle and against Tottenham. I want to win of course, but I am not overly concerned. You need a break, you need a little bit of luck along the way. It is deserting us at the minute."
