Villa in Germany pictures: Lads in good spirits

Villa's players were in good spirits as they trained in Germany on Thursday evening.

Paul Lambert watched on as the likes of Ron Vlaar, Leandro Bacuna, Brad Guzan and Ashley Westwood took to the fields of their base complex.

There were smiles all-around as the lads continued to bond ahead of the 2013-14 campaign.

They warmed up with Michael Watts and Chris Lorkin before doing some ballwork.

The session wasn't too strenuous after the rigours of their match in Rodinghausen the previous night.

Goal hero Nicklas Helenius was involved in the session, which was also overseen by Gary Karsa, Ian Culverhouse and Scott Marshall.

Now it's on to SC Paderborn 07 as Villa look to build up their fitness levels with the second game of their pre-season tour.

Boss Lambert mixed-and-matched his side for the Rodinghausen clash and it could be more of the same again.
