Lambert bemoans defending

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert would not excuse his team's defending after their 3-1 cup defeat to Bradford.

Last Updated: 09/01/13 at 07:00 Post Comment

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."

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!

recently had to complete a difficult project at work. I had to come in early, stay late. I even had to work some 7 day weeks. Anyway, long story short, I'm now a member of Britain First. Slippery slope.
