Barry Injury Scare

Barry Injury Scare

Villa are waiting to hear whether Gareth Barry will be fit enough for the derby clash against the Baggies on Saturday.

Barry played no part in our recent tough win against Gillingham in the 3rd round of the FA Cup after failing a fitness test due to a groin injury he had sustained.

Unfortunately the groin strain still hasn't cleared up, and he has been sent for further scans, the results of which will not be known for a few adys.

Speaking on the official site, Martin O'Neill said:

'We will assess the results of the scans but the fact is Gareth is desperate to play.'

In other injury news, Luke Young missed the Gillingham clash with a tight hamstring, but O'Neill is hopeful he will be fit by the weekend.

Carlos Cuellar and Martin Laursen are both making progress and have rejoined some running work at Bodymoor Heath but it is probably unlikely that either will be back to play even a part on the bench for the Baggies match.

Rubbish man. Zat Knight is playing rather well in ML's abscence. Gardner can't get a league game, and the mighty Marls is kicking his boots. We're fine.

At least these are injuries in areas where we have some cover, and none of them seem like anything long term. Cross everything that Ash & Gabby stay fit!

I reckon this is a wind up, maybe trying to get West Brom to not risk their doubtfulls as we'll have a weeker team as well. Thats what I'm going for anyway. Lies lies lies

I reckon Barry will be fit for Saturday. I think Villa are just being cautious. Also like i said on another post. Anyone saw the interview with Curtis Davies on sky sports news, with him saying that Martin "lion heart" Laursen could be fit for Saturday. UTV

We can still function when introducing one or two replacements into a close to full strength side, its when we put out a so called 'fringe' team that we are found wanting. Gareth is a very important player for us, we all know that, and he'd clearly be missed against premiership opposition, but injuries are going to happen to our star men. We have to prove we can still rise to the challenge. Bring them Baggies on!

Thats interesting Jonesy08. I didn't catch that part of the interview, I just saw the bit where Curtis was rambling on about deadline day transfer dealings. That would be good though if indeed Martin were to make such a speedy return, not to say that Zat hasn't performed more than adequately as his replacement.

Its a smoke screen. I gaurentee Barry will play. They have to try and make it look genuine after 'resting' him on Sunday.
