Despite ending up a loser against dirty dirty Bolton, on loan keeper Gabor Kiraly had a very quiet debut only really having to face one shot, that being the penalty. However he realises tomorrows game against Manchester United might be slightly more demanding.
Villa boss Martin O'Neill said: 'He didn't have any time to think about it (the loan move from Crystal Palace to replace Sorensen and Taylor out injured). And an interesting thing is, other than the day's training, he had to get used to a different ball as they use a different ball in the Championship.'
'He had a good session on Monday as he was getting used to it a bit more with the shooting session all day. He's a bit of an eccentric character, but most keepers are. He has already played a game and that should give him a lift and at least he's played a match at Villa Park and come through it.'
Adding: 'I'd imagine things will get busier on Saturday. We lost the Bolton game after a penalty got past him, but eventually he's going to be fully tested - no doubt about that. He's got the experience, he's played international football and I think so far he's enjoying it. But time will tell. A penalty beat him, but he had little to do, although I can nearly guarantee you that will change on Saturday.'
'It will be a test for him and for all of us, but the most important issue for him is he's looking forward to it, he's not shirking it.'
His job might be made more difficult unless the fog lifts, although on the flipside, maybe the Man Utd players won't be able to see each other and we'll sneak in! There could certainly be a few fixtures off tomorrow though if the forecast is right and the freezing fog continues, so keep an eye out before setting off!
The Hungary international keeper has recently stated he'd love to have another shot at the top level and be back in the Premiership. Talking about Hungary, did you know that Villa means fork in Hungarian? No, didn't think so, you do now though!!
