Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert admits the number of goals his side are conceding from set pieces is driving him "potty".

Villa's vulnerability at free-kicks and corners has been severely punished and is a key reason why they are locked in a Barclays Premier League relegation battle. It proved expensive again on Saturday as West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie scored a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw after Gareth McAuley had won the initial header from Chris Brunt's corner.

Lambert said: "It does drive you mad. It's not rocket science. You go man for man. If it's your man who scores, then we know who was supposed to pick them up. If you're up against an opponent, you just have to make sure that you go and put your head on it."
