Football - Benteke missing for Villa

Aston Villa will still be without striker Christian Benteke and defender Ron Vlaar for their Barclays Premier League match against Swansea at Villa Park on Saturday.

Benteke has missed the last two games with a knee problem, but boss Paul Lambert is hopeful he will be available to play Sunderland on New Year's Day, while Vlaar's calf injury has kept him out since early December.

Midfielder Ashley Westwood will be available again after missing the 1-0 defeat by Crystal Palace through suspension.
