Assist(s) | Marc Albrighton | 22โ€™ |

MATCH SUMMARY

Villa plumb yet new depths under Paul Lambert as he masterminds another loss against a relegation threatened side and leaves Villa hanging by a thread above the trap door for a second successive season. That Lambert should not be in post is unquestionable, that he is underlines the shameful, abject and incompetent regime that has been running the club into the ground since the summer of 2010.

KEY MAN

Gabby Agbonlahor hit the equaliser but a side staring relegation in the face prove too strong for Paul Lambert as he presides over an eighteenth defeat in thirty five games, Saturday, 26 April 2014.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIโ€™m not going to stand here and criticise a guy [Brad Guzan] who has been fantastic for me for two years. Heโ€™ll be disappointed with himself, but heโ€™ll get no criticism for me. โ€œItโ€™s still in our own hands. In a nutshell, the Hull game next week is a cup final.โ€ Paul Lambert, Saturday, 26 April 2014.
