Skipper Ron Vlaar insists Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert retains the full support of the players as they look to recover from Capital Cup One heartbreak.

Villa suffered a shock 4-3 aggregate semi-final setback against npower League Two side Bradford despite winning the second leg 2-1 at Villa Park on Tuesday night. It was the latest blow in a season where the club have become embroiled in a Barclays Premier League relegation battle.

Bradford fans chanted 'you're getting sacked in the morning' to Lambert during the second half. But Vlaar and his team-mates retain total faith in Lambert whose position is not under threat. The Dutch international said: "The players are still all behind the manager. That is not an issue. Why should it be?"
