Aston Villa at Villa Park is a tough challenge for any team. But we’ve played against this team ten times in the past two years, so this is an opponent we know well. They have lost key players like Downing and Young, but when good players go, it allows for new players to blossom, so this is a game we take seriously. I feel we have something to prove from last game and if we build on our first half against Wolverhampton we have a fair chance in this match. Anyway, this is going to be an exciting match. And I’m looking forward to see the traveling Rovers today, they are a fantastic bunch and I’ve missed them over the summer. :)
