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!

Carew is not competition for Moore, perfect strike partners. luke has alot of pace and much better ball control/ technique than gabby. I just hope MON knows this.... does no body remember the Boro hat trick??? remember the quality of the goals??? hes a born winner.

Very glad Moore and Laursen came through the game. Would be great to see Luke back in the squad sometime soon, he and Aggy looked a good partnership at beginning of season. Our style of play changed rapidly after he got injured

I rate him alot better than gabby. He never had a sustained chance in the first team - up front, to show what he can do... Oh wait, he did and he scored like 5times in 3 games. hmmm...

It will be good to see both players fully fit and pushing for first team inclusion in the not too distant future. Laursen looked o.k. last night, closer to a return than does Moore, who was understandably off the pace a bit against Chelsea's second string. On a seperate note, have to comment that Patrik Berger looked the business, arguably our top performer on the night.

Have you ever stopped to think how different the season could have been if BOTH these players had played the whole of the season?
