The 24-year-old striker was the hero of Villa’s victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday night as they put an end to their nine-game winless run with a 1-0 victory at Selhurst Park.
And this weekend he returns to action at Villa Park for the first time since his red card against Tottenham last month.
“I think his goal was world class. But there was more he should’ve done better with,” Lambert said.
“His hold-up play wasn’t first choice. Against Tottenham, he was unplayable, that’s what I expect.
“But there’s still rustiness and I expected that from him.
“For the standard that he sets I expect him to get better the more he plays, more game-time.
“But it’s great to have him back. We’ve missed him. He gives us that threat.”
