Following yet another unkind international break, Aston Villa head down to Loftus Road to take on Queens Park Rangers without Jonathan Kodjia and Scott Hogan. Can Villa find the spark that has eluded them so far after these diversions?
Something is still missing at Villa, despite improvement. The allure, the suspense of something great about to happen just isn’t there.
It perhaps wasn’t a “disastrous” day at Villa Park on Saturday, but it neither was it a good one. Awful is the word Steve Bruce used, I believe.
It’s Wednesday today (okay, it’s Saturday, too), and another solid performance can only help. Three points would say a lot for our prospects, and that at the very least we’ll be in the frame.
Derby day is here, and Villa want all three points, thank you very much. Can we get them without Gabby?
