Ciaran Clark is back in training at Aston Villa.

Clark has been out of action since coming off injured in the Republic of Ireland's 2-2 draw against Austria a fortnight ago.

"He trained on Thursday morning, his first day back since the national game," said Villa boss Paul Lambert.

"We will see how he is today and tomorrow.

"You are never quite sure how long it is going to take but I think he has come back quicker than we thought."
