The Premier League side were well beaten by their League Two opponents in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final on Tuesday night at Valley Parade.

Goals from Naki Wells, Rory McArdle and Carl McHugh - all of them from set-pieces - leave Villa up against it despite Andreas Weimann's goal and Lambert could not hide his disappointment.

"I'm really disappointed we lost the game," Lambert told Sky Sports. "We are in a game now, that's for sure.

"We knew what was coming - set-pieces - and we never defended them well at all. That's definitely what's hurt us but that's certainly not good enough.

"We had a lot of the game and yes they were set-pieces but set-pieces are a vital part of the game and you've got to defend them. We didn't do that.

"But it's half-time and we've got time to retrieve this. We'll see what happens in a fortnight's time.

"We know what we've got to do and we've certainly got to do a lot better than that."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
