Warnock - Getting Back On Track At Blues

Warnock - Getting Back On Track At Blues

Stephen Warnock has called on the team to get back to winning ways tomorrow when we face the Great Unwashed in the Carling Cup.

Speaking on the Official Site as Villa continue their preparations to secure victory in the derby clash (and amongst a reasonable snow fall for Birmingham!) Warnock said there would be no better to lift confidence and kickstart a winning run than by beating our local rivals, progressing in the Cup and ending our two match losing streak.

'It's a big game and once you have been beaten you want to play any game as quick as possible, try and get out on the field and put things right. It is a derby, a massive game and everyone will be watching it with anticipation.'

Our so far leaky back four have fond memories of derbies, well at least three of them do. Warnock, Collins and Dunne made their Villa debuts in the league fixture at the Sty last season and came away with a 1-0 victory.

'Fingers crossed we can do the same again.'

Looking slightly forward should we progress, like most player comments about a return trip to Wembley, Warnock equally wants to set the record straight should be have a second bite of the cherry this season.

'Getting to the final last year was a fantastic achievement but it was also one of the most disappointing days of the season. You have come away with nothing but heartbreak at the end of it.

'You can't turn round and say 'I played in a cup final', 'how did you get on?' 'Well we got beaten.'

'The lads want to get back there and put it right, we want to enjoy that day and we want to win and celebrate after.'

Rightly though Warnock is not getting too carried away with nostalgia or getting ahead of himself as he ends with.

'First, we need to get through this round.'

We all know it's not going to be easy, there are even some doubts with the snow fall predicted and the freeze as to whether the game will go ahead and the daft thing is if the match is postponed we probably have a better chance as it gives the knocks we are carrying additional time to sort themselves out.

If it does go ahead, we know it's going to be physical so it's going to be a tough test for our younger lads and you would hope they'd learnt from the likes of Blackburn.

We've got more than enough skill to beat them on their own patch even with our injuries, it'll be interesting to see if we have enough fight.
