Paul Lambert delight at Darren Bent's return to fitness

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is "delighted" to have striker Darren Bent back from injury ahead of his first Premier League game in charge of the club.

Lambert, who suceeded fellow Scot Alex Mcleish in June, says his "star striker" will be a "goal threat" this season.

Villa, who ended last season only two points clear of the relegation zone, start their new Premier League campaign on Saturday, taking on newly-promoted West Ham at Upton Park.
