I never demeaned FA Cup - Lambert

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert insists he "never demeaned the FA Cup", after his side lost 2-1 to Sheffield United in the third round.

Lambert remarked this week that the competition can prove a hindrance, and that "survival" in the Premier League was the priority.

Villa lost at home against League One relegation battlers Sheffield United as Ryan Flynn's late goal sealed the upset.
