Sebastien Bassong says Norwich City are up for their crunch clash with relegation rivals Aston Villa.

Bassong also dismissed the Paul Lambert factor, which sees the Villa boss facing his former team.

The defender said: "It's going to be a special game for the fans and his old players because they will all want to do well.

"But we've already played Villa twice this season and once we are on the pitch all that is forgotten."
