West Brom v Villa training pictures: Squad in mood for derby day

West Midlands derby fever was in the air at Bodymoor Heath as Villa's players stepped up their preparations for Monday night's trip to West Bromwich Albion.

Club photographer Neville Williams was on the scene as Paul Lambert's squad geared up for the Baggies encounter.

Check out our picture gallery from training.

Lambert received a big boost ahead of the short journey to The Hawthorns with a number of his key stars returning to action.

Andreas Weimann, Brad Guzan, Fabian Delph, Christian Benteke, Ciaran Clark and Antonio Luna were all able to join in with the rest of the squad after injury concerns.

The Villa boss is also monitoring the progress of Gabby Agbonlahor who has been sidelined with an ankle problem.

Photographer Williams captured the players being put through their paces by fitness coaches Michael Watts and Chris Lorkin, as well as taking part in some football drills.

You can also see Guzan in good spirits with goalkeeper coach Terry Gennoe and the other shot-stoppers.
