Aston Villa have no plans to sack manager Paul Lambert

Aston Villa chief executive Tom Fox has claimed that the club will not make a rash decision by sacking manager Paul Lambert following a string of poor results.

Disgruntled supporters have made their feelings about Villa's patient style of play clear in recent games.

The Midlands outfit are just three points above the relegation zone in the Premier League, and remain the lowest-scoring side across all four divisions.

"When things aren't going well, fans bay for that type of blood," Fox told BBC Sport. "That's not the way that I or the owner are going to make a decision. It's a false narrative.

"There's a lot of things happening at this football club, and clearly what happens on the pitch is a focal point. Clearly the manager is the one person who can really influence that, so everyone focuses on it.

"Our focus for the last couple of months has been on making sure we support Paul to make us as successful as possible, and I think we're heading in the right direction."

In the top flight, Villa have not won a game in their last seven.
