Paul Lambert: Aston Villa boss still focused on fight to avoid relegation

Villa have hit form in recent weeks, winning three of their last four games, but they are still only two points outside the bottom three heading into the final six matches of the season.

They host Fulham on Saturday, but Lambert has warned his players to take nothing for granted despite their improvement in form.

He said: "I don't sense any feeling that they feel the job's done and they know the hard work's still there, but they also know that they're playing really well at the moment.

"The more that we can keep winning the more it'll happen and they'll get used

to that feeling.

"If we do get that winning feeling and we're at it then we're a really good side that's for sure.

"If you keep that collective thing and that spirit then that's half the battle. It's a team thing. If you look at the most successful teams then everyone's pulling the same way and this isn't any different."

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
