The 44-year-old boss has been delighted with the performances of the defender and striker, particularly in their outing in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool in their last Premier league match.

"The two lads who have come in have been excellent for us,” said Lambert.

"Ryan came in and I thought he was excellent in the game.

"Last week at Liverpool, he fitted in as if he had been here for years. He is a really good player who can develop into a right top one.”

Left-back Bertrand joined from Chelsea and Holt from Wigan with both players making their debuts in the Liverpool game.

The Scot also went on to say how Holt has made a real impression off the pitch as well as on it in the build up to the derby.

"Holty has been fantastic around the place with us. He is a good guy and a good character. He did well when he came on.

"There's no doubt they have given us a lift,” added Lambert.

"People probably questioned why we brought in Holty, but I knew what I was getting - on and off the pitch. He's been bubbly.”
