ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambert's Villa lose their third game in five Premier League matches as concerns mount. Heavier defeats and worse performances than had been typical under both Lambert's generally poor predecessors Houllier and McLeish raised alarm bells. With goals at a premium and a defence struggling, the folly of Lambert having ostracised the experience of Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock (now on loan at Championship side Bolton) and banishing Shay Given to the subs bench became ever more apparent. Five League games in it was clear Lambert wasn't the solution many had hoped. Meanwhile, left back Joe Bennett, 22, made his debut after joining from Championship side Middlesbrough for a fee of ยฃ2,840,000 in August 2012.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThey (the young players) have to get it pretty quickly (playing in the Premier League) although they gave us plenty of effort. I canโ€™t fault that, but we have to keep cracking on now. โ€œItโ€™s important to try and keep a level head and keep going. Itโ€™s a long, long season and there will be plenty of ups and downs to come.โ€ Paul Lambert, Saturday, 22 September 2012.
