Aston Villa defender Clark frustrated by Fulham defeat

The 24-year-old centre-back was disappointed that the Villans were unable to continue their good form in Sunday's clash, but is eager to forget about the result and move on
Ciaran Clark says he was left frustrated by Aston Villa’s 2-0 defeat away at strugglers Fulham on Sunday which ended a five-game unbeaten spell for the Villans.

Paul Lambert's men had not lost during November and carried on their fine form with a superb 3-2 victory against Southampton on Wednesday, before stumbling at Craven Cottage.

The Ireland international was disappointed with the way his side conceded against Fulham and rued their inability to apply pressure to a team that had lost seven consecutive games before Sunday's encounter.

"We were very disappointed in that result,” Clark told the club's official website. "After the midweek game - the win over Southampton - we were obviously looking to pick up another three points. It wasn't to be.

"When you go two-down just before half-time, it's a bit of a blow. But we wanted to come out, create some chances and nick the next goal. It would have turned in our favour and put pressure on them. But that wasn't to be.

"We didn't really create that many scoring opportunities which was frustrating. We had few chances. But if one had gone in it might have been a different story.

"We had a penalty appeal with five to go which should have been given. It was a disappointing afternoon.

"We were on a high. We have had a few good results. We were unbeaten in five. But we won't let this get us down too much.

"It was one of those frustrating games where we couldn't break them down. They put a lot of men behind the ball and did frustrate us. But we will move forward and now focus on the next game. We will go again at the weekend."
