Mellberg Confident Of Villa Win

Mellberg Confident Of Villa Win

Olof Mellberg says that despite an uninspiring performance against Derby County last weekend, the players know the importance of the local derby and that the team can step up a gear.

He told Lisa Smith at the Birmingham Post:

'...am I confident for the Birmingham game? Yes, definitely.'

Adding, 'It is important to win even if you are not on top of your game. We probably need to raise our game a little bit for Sunday and I hope the Derby game showed we have acquired the knack of winning when not playing well. That is really important. All the top teams, that is what they do and sometimes that can be the difference from being up there challenging and being a mid-table team.'

Just got to hope that the players, especially the younger ones, realise they'll have to BATTLE for every ball and nothing but 100% for the full 90 mins will be accepted from the Villa faithful, this is their time to repay our support surely?!?
