Moore & Laursen Complete 90 Minutes
Luke Moore and Martin Laursen both came through unscathed a 90 minute reserves game run out against Chelsea last night at Walsall's Bescott Stadium.
Moving swiftly on from the score, we lost 3-0, Moore said of his return game:
'The result could have been better, but the shoulder came through it alright and it was good to get the 90 minutes.'
Patrik Berger and Isaiah Osbourne both played 45 minutes. Jlloyd Samuel went off injured after 24 minutes.
VILLA: Olejnik, Lowry, Samuel, Laursen, O'Halloran, Herd, Albrighton, Osbourne, Moore, Stieber, Berger. Subs: Y.Bellon (for Berger ht), Bevan, Hogg (for Samuel 24), Mikaelsson (for Osbourne ht).
Great to see Laursen returning so quickly this time, he was awesome before he picked up his knee injury against Chelski last November. Luke Moore has also been missed more than perhaps we thought he would be, lets hope he can now push on and take his career to the next level, got a bit of tough competition with the arrival of John Carew though!
