Villa – Bristol City; Nothing to be scared of

I meant to post before the Rotherham game, but just didn’t find time.
The basis of the post was that I was supremely confident, but was worried that anyone can become overly so.
There’s always a side that will catch you out and I really thought it was going to be Rotherham.
But we again proved our resolve and got the result, even though the odds were against us before half time.

Anyway, moving on to tomorrow, we face a very good side in Bristol City, who play decent football.
And from what I’m seeing, many fans are quite worried about this one.
I’m not.
Purely because, as I’ve previously stated, I think we can beat anyone in this league, no problem, the way things stand.
Of course, that’s a dangerous way of thinking, but I really do believe it’s true.

Squad news and the obvious one is that Mings is out after his sending-off.
Chester might be available, but I’m going to guess that Jedinak will start.

Bristol don’t seem to have any problems at all and it’s just a matter of which formation Lee Johnson wants to go with.

We have a very good record against Bristol and while I’m always worried about us being complacent, I really see us extending it.
Ok, on the face of it, we’ll have a weakened defence.
But I’m pretty sure that the confidence that is obviously running through the squad will see us through.
We have the ammo and the firepower, simple.

No doubt I’ll come unstuck with my prediction at some time, but my attitude says if you feel confident, go with it.

Villa to win 2-1.

    With GD now two wins ahead of Boro with only two to play. What a win!

    Don’t care who we play now, we can beat them.

    Mcginn played well motm for me. He never stopped running and took charge of the midfield .

    villa win and really deserved. chances we had and spurned we should have won far greater margin. but whos moaning not me 2 1 didnt reflect our dominance, motm was a tough one. el ghazi just shaved it from a brilliant whelen who marshalled villa throughout the middle. el ghazi was electric at times, the best i have seen of him, he was very direct at times running at the city defenders and literally scaring the sh it out of them.

    undoubtedly we are a better side with grealish no dispute but we are not a one man team. adapting to losing good players is always hard but today we missed our two centre backs and coped really well. tammy went off and davis was a real handful. grealish we offcourse missed him but el ghazi and mcginn both chipped in to lessen the blow of no grealish

    nice to see lansbury gets some minutes, axel grew into the game after a shaky start, played a lot since his return from injury, which is not ideal

    ‘Villa swaggered through the second half and fully deserved to win’ – BBC

    25 shots – yep 25!

    Now we’re really starting to scare the rest of the Championship promotion contenders.

    One bl***y happy Villan.
