Defender Zat Knight is determined to play his part in Aston Villa's UEFA Cup campaign.
Knight has been on the fringes of Martin O'Neill's squad but has played in the second legs of both Villa's UEFA Cup ties so far - and now wants to be part of the group stage too.
"I just want to keep fit so that if I do get a chance and the manager wants to call on me - then I can give a good account of myself," he said.
"It makes last season's hard work worthwhile. If we can win our home games and pick up points on the road then we have a chance."
