Liverpool v Villa training pictures: Holt gears up for Anfield clash


Grant Holt joined his new Villa team-mates for training at Bodymoor Heath in preparation for Saturday's trip to Liverpool.

Check out an image gallery from Thursday's training session.

Holt - who completed a loan move from Wigan Athletic on Tuesday - was in good spirits as he linked up with Paul Lambert's squad ahead of the Anfield showdown.

Club photographer Neville Williams was on the scene to capture the former Norwich City forward as he got to grips with his new surroundings.

The 32-year-old is hopeful of making his debut against Brendan Rodgers' side in the Barclays Premier League encounter on Saturday night.

He has fond memories of playing at Anfield. In October 2011, Holt came off the bench to score an equaliser for Lambert's Norwich side in a 1-1 draw with the Reds.

Manager Lambert has most of his key players available for Saturday's game, with the exception of Nathan Baker who is recovering from a mild concussion and Chris Herd who has a hamstring problem.

But full-back Joe Bennett is back in full training following a back injury.
