MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe are unbeaten in four and have won at a difficult place. Coming here [and winning] was a massive result, but I thought it was well deserved. โ€œI thought it was a big, big performance. I have played with some world class strikers and Christian Benteke, if he keeps progressing, could be one of the best. The performance was massive for us. โ€œWe are up to 12th, we have had a lot of players out, so the progress is there. I understand the disappointment because Aston Villa are a huge, huge football club.โ€ Paul Lambert, Tuesday, 2 December 2014.
