New Aston Villa skipper Gareth Barry has hailed the impact made by youngsters Luke Moore and Gabriel Agbonlahor in the club´s flying start to the season.

Barry believes the confidence shown in the pair by manager Martin O´Neill has played a big part in their improved form. Nineteen-year-old Agbonlahor and 20-year-old Moore, who scored his first goal of the campaign against Newcastle, have operated on the flanks in support of central striker Juan Pablo Angel.

Villa have taken seven points from a possible nine, and Barry told PA Sport: "Luke and Gabriel have been a revelation already. Young players like that need confidence and at the moment the manager is saying the right things to them - and they are responding the way they should be."
