Everton v Villa picture gallery: First shots of Sylla/Dawkins in training


Photographer Neville Williams was once again first on the scene as he snapped away at Yacouba Sylla and Simon Dawkins in training.

The early-morning session represented their first under Paul Lambert.

Check out the exclusive pictures of the newboys.

They were both hard at it as they looked to impress the boss in the build-up to Everton on Saturday.

Sylla signed early on transfer deadline day, completing a three-and-a-half year switch from Clermont Foot while Dawkins was a late-night addition, putting pen to paper on a loan deal just before the door shut.

The midfield pair arrived early at Bodymoor Heath as they geared up for Goodison Park.

They were joined by Karim El Ahmadi, who has returned to Villa from the African Cup of Nations.

El Ahmadi will offer Lambert extra options in central midfield, with Fabian Delph a doubt for the Merseyside meeting.

Ashley Westwood, who was limping towards the end of the Newcastle clash, was also on the fields after shaking off the troublesome problem.
