Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert backs Ciaran Clark to recover from his crucial error in Monday's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has backed Ciaran Clark to bounce back from his crucial mistake in Monday's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League.

The defender was to blame for City's goal at Villa Park when his slip allowed Edinz Dzeko to play in Carlos Tevez to score.

"He'll be better for it in a stupid, roundabout way," Lambert told The Sun. "It would be different if he was making mistake after mistake.

"He tried something because his confidence was extremely high with the way the game was going. But I'm sure he won't try anything like that again."

Villa are currently in the relegation zone on goal difference.
