Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry admits manager Martin O'Neill will need to buy in the January market.

Barry said: "I am sure the manager realises we need some more bodies.

"It doesn't take a lot work out that if we get a few injuries or suspensions like we are having at the moment, we are going to fall a bit short.

"January will be interesting for the manager. I am sure he has got a few things lined up.

"It is a long season. We are not in Europe so it is a bit easier for ourselves. We will do the best with what we've got and hopefully a few more will come in January."
