We'll be fine - Lambert
Paul Lambert is adamant Aston Villa 'will be fine' and he has 'faith and trust' in his players to start climbing up the Premier League.
The Villa boss has endured a difficult start to life in charge of the club he took over from the sacked Alex McLeish during the summer as the club have only managed one win in their opening nine league matches. And, following the weekend's 1-1 draw against his former club Norwich which left Villa just outside the relegation places, Lambert vowed to the club's worried supporters that they will turn things around this season. Looking ahead to a tough run of fixtures against Sunderland, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal during the next month, he said: "I know the stats. We have to try to win games. "But I have a real faith and trust in these players. I have great belief in them. I'll stick with them. They will be fine. "I've not been long here and we just need to keep building and building and keep doing our best. "In terms of the league, there is nothing in it (points-wise). If the lads keep the effort and commitment going, then they will be fine. "The character we show is a major plus every game. The team battled brilliantly against Norwich not to get beat after the sending-off of Joe [Bennett], which is a great trait to have. "If you can't win the game, then make sure you don't lose it. Some of the defending was exceptional."
