Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has stressed he "won't walk away" from the club's desperate battle for Barclays Premier League survival ahead of Tuesday's crunch home clash with fellow strugglers Newcastle.
Lambert has the task of picking up his players after back-to-back cup defeats against lower league Bradford and Millwall in the space of 72 hours and admits he has not experienced a run like the one currently on by Villa - two points from the last six games and the double cup blow - during his managerial career.
But when asked if there was any chance he would quit, Lambert said: "No. I can only do, or try to do my best. There's no chance I'd walk away from it. You have to fight like anything to get up. You pick yourself up and there's no point in lying down and accepting it."
