Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert says he has received support from club owner Randy Lerner following Friday's FA Cup defeat by Championship club Millwall.

Villa, 17th in the Premier League, lost 2-1 against the Lions and were also recently knocked out of the Capital One Cup by League Two side Bradford City.

Lambert said he shared an encouraging phone call with Lerner and that his message was to "keep on fighting".

The Villa boss believes his side need six league wins to avoid relegation.
