  • FULL-TIME: Aston Villa claimed their first league win of the season and their first at home since March thanks to goals from new signings Matthew Lowton and Christian Benteke against Swansea.

  • Swansea have only won four of the 17 league meetings with Villa now as the referee blows his whistle for full-time.

  • Villa counter-attack and Ron Vlaar shows neat footwork. A captain's performance today!

  • The Villa fans are loving this now as they get behind Lambert's side.

  • On home soil, the Villans have won just one of their last 14 Premier League games (W1 D5 L8), but it looks to be coming to an end today.

  • A debut goal for the Belgian international as he picks off Ashley Williams' poor back header to make no mistake from close-range.

  • GOAL VILLA! Christian Benteke

  • CHANCE! Luke Moore should have scored for Swansea with a close-range header, but Brad Guzan is right behind it.

  • Villa have worked hard this half and Swansea have seemingly run out of ideas.

  • At the other end Luke Moore turns and tries to ping the ball into the top corner, but it's wide of goal.

  • BAD MISS! It should have been a dream debut for Christian Benteke, but the striker contrives to miss the cross from about 3-yards out.

  • FINE EFFORT! Karim El Ahmadi's right-foot curler from the edge of the box is palmed away by Vorm.

  • Aston Villa are on a run of 13 Premier League games without a win (W0 D6 L7) remember!

  • Luke Moore is booed by the home fans as he looks to get his shot away, but it's well blocked.

  • YELLOW CARD: Eric Lichaj is rightly booked for bringing Nathan Dyer down.

  • SUBSTITUTIONS: Charles N'Zogbia replaces Brett Holman for Villa while Israeli striker Itay Shechter comes on for Leon Britton for the visitors.

  • CHANCE! Bent flicks the ball on for Benteke, but the Belgian striker's sidefooter is deflected wide of the target.

  • Bent and Benteke combine. A sign of things to come at Villa Park!

  • Vorm is out to collect Bannan's outswinger from the other side and now Swansea have the ball in possession.
