Referee was poor - Lambert

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits his side did not deserve to win but was unhappy with the performance of referee Mike Dean during their 2-0 defeat at Fulham.

A strike from Steve Sidwell and a penalty from Dimitar Berbatov ensured new Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen enjoyed his first win at the club.

Lambert says Fulham's penalty was harsh and felt Villa should have been awarded a spot-kick of their own for a late foul on Gabriel Agbonlahor.
