The struggling Brewers visit Villa Park today sitting bottom of the table on the heels of three straight losses. Steve Bruce said it all in his presser:
“It’s pointless going away and getting a result at Sheffield United if we can’t get the right result against Burton. We are in a good place at the moment. Let’s make sure we stay there.”
I’m not really sure what to add. With Villa sitting third just behind Derby (come on, Brentford), Bruce’s job turns to sustaining success. He’s got to keep the team focused and believing. At this point, we’ve seen Villa have the necessary quality. Now it’s about belief, consistency, and hunger.
Otherwise, I’m expecting we’ll see Axel Tuanzebe off the bench at some point, but Lewis Grabban isn’t being rushed to fitness, which makes sense.
So…Like SB says. We’re in a good place. Let’s stay there.
Over to you.
