QPR v Villa podcast: Benteke buoyant after winning contribution

Christian Benteke is the star guest on this week's pre-match podcast ahead of the QPR game.

Jack Woodward is joined by a host of big names in the run-up to the clash at Loftus Road and goal hero Benteke tops the billing.



Benteke tells us about his strike partnership with Gabby Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann and how they're all starting to click, much to the chagrin of Barclays Premier League defenders.

He also hails the young lions who are roaring in claret and blue, midfielders like Barry Bannan and Ashley Westwood.

The powerful forward is a strong believer that the quality of the youthful players emerging bodes very well for the future of the club.

Aussie ace Brett Holman is another guest in Communications HQ.

The all-action midfielder tells us of his delight at how solid the team have been over the past two games - as well as showing a threat in the final third.

Brett Holman believes the team are looking solid after two clean sheets and carrying a threat going forward.

Midfield starlet Bannan also joins us and spells out his delight at just playing football at present.

He hails Paul Lambert, stresses the team are improving all the time and are eager to shoot up the Barclays Premier League table.

Paul Lambert runs the rule over his star striker Benteke, who's been a revelation in claret and blue since joining in the transfer window.

He stresses that while Benteke is a handful, he will only get better with age.

The manager also hails the performances of Brad Guzan but says the USA ace has to stay on his toes because he has the brilliant Shay Given waiting in the wings if he slips up.

Tony Morley praises the team dynamic and stresses that there's no weak link in the side.

He also speaks of his delight at the obvious team spirit in camp.

And finally, after a flurry of requests from listeners, there's another chance to hear the official commentary of Benteke's vital goal against Reading. Enjoy!
