Lambert backs misfiring Weimann

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has backed his striker Andreas Weimann and claimed that the forward needs time to reach his goal-scoring form of last year, according to Sky Sports.

The Austrian has scored just four goals this season, three in the Premier League, compared to last season’s tally of 12.


Despite his patchy scoring form, Lambert has praised his striker, claiming that he regularly performs on the pitch and is not used to regular playing time.


"I think people are missing the point with him because he's only really been playing regularly for about a year," said Lambert.


"I know he was in and out the team the season before last when he'd just come through the academy.


"It's only probably since we came in that he's had a sustainable run at it. Last year he was excellent, this year I think more times than not he's played well for us."


Weimann has made 64 starts and 28 substitute appearances for Aston Villa so far in his career after coming through the academy.


Although hitting the back of net has become a little less familiar for the 22-year-old, Lambert insists that he is a young player who will just get better.


"This year the only difference is his goalscoring hasn't been what it was last year because he scored a lot last year. That's the only thing missing from his game, but Andi is another young lad who is really still starting out," added Lambert.


"He's a natural finisher, I'll give him that, and he gets himself into scoring positions.


"When he gets a chance you think he will score every time - or he'll hit the target.


"I think it's well documented that his workrate is incredible. If Andi doesn't score you know he's going to put a right good shift in for you and that's a big attribute to have."
