Paul Lambert is backing his Aston Villa side to win their survival battle, despite lacking the funds Tuesday's opponents Newcastle have to strengthen their squad.

Magpies owner Mike Ashley has given substantial financial backing to manager Alan Pardew during the January transfer window, as the scrap to avoid relegation from the Barclays Premier League hots up. Villa manager Lambert has only limited funds to add to his squad, although he admits he needs "a few in" before the window closes at 11pm on Thursday.

However, he will not criticise the policy of Villa owner-chairman Randy Lerner, who has spent in excess of £250million during his time at the club. Lambert said: "We need a few in. I'm not going to say 'we need four or five' because people will have a perception of what they think. I know in my own head."
