Aston Villa players are enjoying the new approach says Westwood.

Villa midfielder Ashley Westwood admits his team-mates are enjoying the new approach Paul Lambert has introduced.

Paul Lambert has recently been criticised for their style of play and the fact they have scored very few goals this season has been an issue their fans haven’t been happy with.

However, Westwood reckons the new approach being installed will pay off really soon.

"The way we’ve been playing is really enjoyable," he told the Birmingham Mail.

"We're keeping the ball and moving teams around the way that they used to do to us.

"We feel like we are progressing.

"It’s just about being patient now."

Westwood also said the reason they haven’t scored as many goal in the 2014-15 campaign is due to the defensive approach of opposing teams..

"What we've found in the last few weeks is that teams have come and sat off us," he added. "It's tough to break teams down when they play like that.

"Even the likes of Chelsea and Man City struggle at times and when the top teams go abroad they have the same problems, too.

"We've got to be patient, keep moving the ball around and keep wearing teams out. That’s what teams did to us last year.

"We managed to do it against Blackpool [in Sunday's 1-0 FA Cup win] in the end but that was only after we started moving the ball quicker in the second half.

"The last ten minutes we felt it was coming and in the end it did."
