Helenius bags

AaB claimed just their second Danish Superliga win of the season after claiming a 1-0 victory over FC Copenhagen.

The defending champions had drawn four of their opening six fixtures, but seized the initiative on Saturday night thanks to Nicklas Helenius' penalty on the half hour.

FC Copenhagen could not find a way back into the contest as they suffered their third defeat of the campaign.



Lambert keen to offer Delph new Villa deal

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is eager to tie down Fabian Delph on a new long-term deal after the midfielder's impressive England debut.

The Yorkshireman made his Three Lions bow as a substitute in last week's friendly win over Norway at Wembley.

There a few players who are going to be out of contract, to be honest, and we'll try to get around to talking to them. I spoke to Fabian early doors and we'll see how it goes.

We've just got a new chief executive in (Tom Fox) which I'm certain will help.

I'm pretty sure we'll sit down with Fabian. I'm not worried. When players get into the last year of their contract, it is what it is.
