Villa boss Lambert happy with Benteke return

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is delighted to have Christian Benteke fully fit.

The boss reckons Benteke is almost back to the stage he wants to be at.

"Getting back on the pitch has been a real boost for him. I think the adrenaline thing takes over.

"You've been out for a long time, suddenly the crowd are singing your name.

"He's been training well the last couple of weeks.

"He's feeling a lot stronger and healthier - he's close to starting."
