Lambert: Building is long-term project

Published Add your comment

Paul Lambert admits rebuilding Aston Villa is a long-term project, but believes his crop of youngsters are adapting to the demands of Barclays Premier League football.

Lambert saw his side, with an average age of less than 24, take another step forward by holding in-form Stoke to a goalless draw at Villa Park and extend their own unbeaten run to four matches.

Lambert said: "When they go out there to play, I trust them. Some of the football we're playing has been very good. But I was also delighted with the way we coped with Stoke's strength. It is hard to keep Stoke at bay with the way they play."
