Bentley Danger Warns Young

Bentley Danger Warns Young

Ashley Young believes that Villa must be on their toes on Saturday and make sure David Bentley has a bad game.

Young knows Bentley from the England u-21 setup and knows quality when he sees it, however I think Blackburn will be more worried about our youngsters, than we will be of theirs.

Speaking on the official site, Young was full of praise for Bentley's contribution this season:

'Bentley is definitely a danger man on Saturday because he has terrific ability, they've got good players all round but Bentley is a stand-out. He is impressive because he can play in a range of positions - down the right, left and just behind the front man.

'His delivery from set-pieces is excellent too and he is a definite threat.

'But we need to concentrate on our own form and our own performance and hopefully the result should take care of itself.'

Young knows Villa could be in for a thriller match again given our 4-0 victory earlier in the season, another result like that would certainly wipe away any disappointment from drawing at Liverpool.

'The goal against Blackburn was my best of the season - although I haven't scored as many as I would have liked.

'That was a good victory and let's hope history repeats itself on Saturday.

'Ewood Park is a difficult venue so we were delighted with the final scoreline. It was a good performance from everyone.

'We go fourth if we win at the weekend. There's no question we wanted a European place at the start of the season so to be where we are - and possibly where we could be on Saturday evening - is a terrific achievement.

'That's a credit to the boys and how well they've done this season.'

Should sign David Bentley then we won't need to worry about him. Perfect for our right hand side problem.

They've got a few players who if given the chance could hurt us, Bentley being just one of them. Tough game ahead I think, they've got something to prove after the 4-0 thumping they received on home soil.

Read a rumour on Friday about Keegan trying to sign Bentley for 10m....apparrently Blackburn are succeptable to a decent bid, as long as it happens before a potential take-over in the offing....for a player like him, i'd offer Blackburn 12m now and be done with it.
