Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is convinced of their firepower, despite defeat at Southampton.

Lambert was impressed with the strike partnership of Bent and Christian Benteke, despite the scoreline.

He said: "I was impressed with our two strikers. I believe they will be a good partnership. Darren's goal was him to a tee, that is how he has made a living out of the game.

"I am glad he scored but I would rather win. The game is about winning."
