Lambert plays down Benteke injury

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert played down fears over the fitness of Christian Benteke after the striker came off injured in the 1-0 win over Norwich.

I think he's not too bad. I think he's actually slipped, I think that was the initial injury but we'll see how he is.

I was delighted for Kozak to come on and score his first goal and that's why we brought Libor here, we needed some back up just in case Christian got injured.
