First off, apologies.
I said the QPR game was 0-3.
Of course, it wasn’t.
I was just so gutted, or more accurately numb, that I barely noticed we’d scored, even though I actually watched it live.
So while I’m thinking that this really ought to be a nailed on 3 points, the thoughts that even a club struggling to survive this league might still be able to beat us, swim in my head.
It’s ridiculous really, as if you want to finish near the top, you have to put the struggling sides away.
But that’s what this league is all about, in that anyone can beat anyone.
And as much as we’ve seen lows like the QPR game, so I think it’s a truly great league; just as it should be in being properly competitive.
If only the Prem was the same.
Anyway, squad news and the big one for us is that James Bree will definitely start at Left back, purely because we have no other option. And there was me thinking he’s a right back???
The only other change I’d expect is Bjarnasson to come in for Jedinak, but Bruce might have a change of heart and really change things up.
I doubt it, myself.
As for Bolton, Darren Pratley has a slight thigh injury which could rule him out.
Jan Kirchhoff, David Wheater and Josh Vela could all make returns to the side if needed.
So after losing to a team we really shouldn’t have mid-week, it comes down to pure belief on my part.
And I just think we can win this and get things back on track.
0-2 to the Villa.
The plus point is that it’s a 5.30pm kick-off, so I’ll get to see it, as it’s on Sky.
The downside is the AVTV subscription, along with other costs, has proved pretty much a waste of money this season, although it does get you the odd game.
