Collins Looking For Repeat Of Last Season

Collins Looking For Repeat Of Last Season

No don't be daft, he's not on about the 7-1 thumping, he's on about the nice 2-1 home victory!

Speaking on the Official Site as we near a mere 24 hours from our chance to avenge our away league loss and the Cup hiccup, James Collins has said he would be more than happy with a repeat of last season's home game, especially as it saw him crowned Man of the Match and he bagged his first Villa goal.

Although you wouldn't have guessed it, Villa do have a good home record against the Russians having lost only once in the last 10 meetings, and Collins believes there's no good reason why that record cannot continue.

'It's a similar situation to last time as we played them just after international duty. You know it's going to be a tough game against them but on the day we were superb. I had all my family there and to get a win was unbelievable, topped off with a winning goal for myself!'

Collins was also quick to praise the reaction of the fans during the game, especially during the second half and it's clear he hopes the fans are in the same voice come tomorrow.

'I remember the fans being unbelievable in the second half and the last couple of minutes hanging on when we were under attack, the fans helped us right through. They play a massive part.'

It's certainly going to be a difficult day, but even Collins acknowledges that the recent internationals will hinder Chelsea more than Villa, especially as Frank Lampard looks likely to miss the game, all depends on whether we are on our game or not ultimately.

But as usual, that is always the case.

I think we'll all have big smiles on our faces come Saturday night if James' wish comes true. We are well capable of beating them, as top quality a side as they undoubtably are, so if Richard and James can keep it tight at the back, then who knows?
