Guzan: Aston Villa on the right track under Lambert

Despite his side having suffered hammerings at the hands of Chelsea and Tottenham in their last two games, the American is confident the Villans will turn things around

Aston Villa keeper Brad Guzan has insisted the club are on the right track under the management of Paul Lambert, despite their 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on Boxing Day.

The Villans followed up their 8-0 hammering to Chelsea by succumbing to a ruthless Spurs, with Gareth Bale striking a hat trick at Villa Park.

However, the American shot-stopper is confident his team-mates can bounce back and has full faith in his manager's ability.

He told the club’s official website: "It's not the result we wanted but we have to keep pressing forward. It's a bump in the road but it doesn't throw us off the track. We know what we're trying to do here.

"We're still confident as a team and as individuals and confident about where the manager and his coaching staff are taking us. We keep looking forward and moving together and sticking together.

"Coming up short in this one is frustrating, yes, but you have to find a way to keep pressing forward. We know it's not an easy road. Every game in this league is difficult.

"For us, we have to take it on the chin and move on. You can't dwell on it too much. You have to find a way to keep moving forward.

"We just continue to try and get better. That's what it's all about. We stick together. We are confident about what we're doing as a team and as a club.

"For me, as I said, this is a bump in the road. It's not a result that we or the fans want to see but at the same time we will keep moving forward."
