Ahead of their likely debuts this weekend, Paul Lambert has talked briefly about what he feels Ashley Westwood and Christian Benteke will bring to the team.
Speaking to the Official Site ahead of Swansea game, Lambert first talked about Benteke.
‘I think he will be a handful. I watched him against Croatia and he was excellent, the way he played. He is only a young lad but he will be a handful.’

On Westwood he added.
‘The opportunity is there for him. I said to him, go and grab it. In training, he has been excellent. It’s when the match starts you have to step up the plate which I’m sure he will do.’

Sounds very much like these two will be playing some part in the game. I think I’d expect Westwood to start, with Benteke coming on in the second half as you’d assume Lambert will lead with Darren Bent and Gabby Agbonlahor?
