Villa v West Brom podcast: Stars past and present preview derby

Jack Woodward is joined by Villa stars past and present ahead of the big derby clash against West Bromwich Albion.

Manager Paul Lambert offers his thoughts, while Fabian Delph and Barry Bannan give a view from the dressing room.

Villa legends Ken McNaught and Peter McParland are also on hand to look ahead to the encounter with the Baggies.



Lambert believes it will be really tough against Albion because they're going really well in the league.

But he backs the fans to get behind his team after the performance at Manchester City on Tuesday night.

Bannan talks about the healthy competition for places in the squad - particularly in midfield.

He also praises the form and attributes of Matthew Lowton, Christian Benteke and Brad Guzan.

McParland says he hopes Marc Albrighton can recapture his best form now he's back from injury.

The FA Cup legend also reveals he has been impressed with Barry Bannan and Ciaran Clark, who he thinks look more comfortable and settled in the team now.

Delph describes his feelings after the brilliant Man City triumph and says he was thrilled to get 120 minutes under his belt after the injury problems he suffered.

The former Leeds midfielder says confidence is sky high but has warned against complaceny going into the Baggies clash.

McNaught hails the great character and resolve of the squad.

The European Cup-winning defender feels Lambert's Lions now have a taste for success after their heroics at the Etihad.
