Villa Reserves Go Top Of League

Villa Reserves Go Top Of League

The Villa reserves had a double boost yesterday as they beat Birmingham City 1-0 and West Ham lost 3-0 to Chelsea.

Our win put Villa back on top of the league with two points over West Ham and two games in hand. 6 points from 4 games will give Villa the title and also means they will face the northern league champions.

Villa play Portsmouth at home next Wednesday, kick off 7pm. I assume it is at Villa Park now, but will confirm next week when the details are available.

In last nights victory over local rivals Blues Sam Williams scored the winner. That was the 20-year-olds first start after being out most of the season due to injury.

VILLA: Taylor, Lund, Lowry, Osbourne, Knight, Clark, Salifou, Routledge, Williams, Bannan, Berger. Subs: Collins (for Williams 66), Bevan, Baker, Albrighton, Hofbauer.

Villa seem to have a good mix of youth and experience within the reserve side which IMO must be a great help in bringing the younger players on. So many reserve sides are players fresh out of the accademy, though they may well be technically very good players, they benefit greatly from the mix of experience, like Berger. I would like to see more reserve teams follow your lead, this would make the reserves far more competetive and close the gap between reserve and first team football, which is currently huge.

Doesn't Nathan Delfouneso usually play for the reserves? Maybe he might be in the squad for the Bolton game?

Good to see Sam Williams back in business. He and young Adam McGurk are two highly promising youngsters, both battling to overcome serious injury problems, but both hopefully set to make a big impression and make a serious push for a first team squad place next season.
