Villa boss Lambert seeking derby impact from Bertrand, Holt

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is confident his new signings are ready for tonight's derby against West Bromwich Albion.

On-loan Chelsea star Ryan Bertrand makes his home debut tonight with Lambert hoping he and new arrival Grant Holt can give the Villa Park faithful something to cheer about.

He said: "Their arrival has been terrific for us and has given everyone a lift.

"Ryan has played at the very highest level in the game and won the biggest club competition going with the Champions League so there's no worries about him handling big games."
