'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Chris Sutton Gunning For Rovers

Villa striker Chris Sutton hopes to get a chance against his former club Blackburn Rovers this afternoon and is looking to put one passed them.

The 33-year-old, who has been used as a sub in the last three games said: 'I feel a bit fitter now and it's been nice to get on in the games, because when you're out of the game you do miss it. I can obviously still improve on my fitness, but that will come with training. I thought I'd got my first Villa goal in the second-half at Anfield, but it was a good save to deny me. It was a disappointing result up there, although Liverpool played well. But it's a minor blip really. We've had a good start to the season and hopefully we can kick on again.'

Adding: 'The main thing is that the team win and hopefully play well. I played against them for Celtic and scored, so if I get a chance, hopefully I can play a part in the team winning. I had five really nice years there. I enjoyed living in the area. It's a great club with real good support, because it's only a small town. We won the Premiership when I was there, which is a nice memory and they're nice people. When I played in the Uefa Cup for Celtic I got a good reception. I always had a good rapport with the fans up there. But I'm a Villa player now and I want to do my best, no matter who I play against.'

So will the former player curse strike again for Blackburn? Lets hope so. Would you start Sutton today? Tell us what you think in the article comments.

Sutton should really start scoring again, as hee hasn't scored in ages. it would be good to seeee him get onto thee scoresheet today.

I hope he gets the opportunity this afternoon. His second half showing at Anfield deserves the reward of a starting place today. Having said that, I'm still hoping MB comes good, so its a tough decision for MON to have to make. MB needs games, and goals, to get his confidence back, and he wont achieve that sitting on the bench. Tough call.

I have this really bad feeling that he'll open his account against Rovers today... and to rub salt in the cross will come from a rejected trialist Didier Agathe!

Keep big Chris fit and I believe we'll have a very useful signing on our hands.
