The was more discontent from the stands at Leicester City on Saturday as Villa lost 1-0 to the bottom club for their sixth consecutive league outing without a win. They have also scored only 11 goals in the top-flight this season, which is considerably less than any other side.
Again at the King Power Stadium, it was a struggle for Villa to create opportunities, with Leicester having much the better of the play and only poor finishing preventing them from winning by a much larger margin. Paul Konchesky got the game’s only goal, drilling home a low shot in off the post after some slack defending.
Both sides saw a player sent off as the game ended in bad-tempered fashion, but the defeat leaves Villa just three points above the drop zone, and the fans were left to vent their anger. However, Lambert believes he can turn things around in time. “In football you will either sink or you swim,” he said.
“And I’m certainly not going to roll over. The fans pay a lot of money to come and watch this team. I understand that. But I don’t want Aston Villa to keep doing what they’re doing. Now we have to come through it.”
