Six pointer, blah blah blah! In all seriousness, Villa have got to build on their impressive festive tally of results and start to seriously climb the table. A few wins will make the world of difference, a few losses and we stand the chance of getting sucked back into the basement battle.
Baros returns from suspension, Bakke returns having had to sit out last weekends cup tie due to the instructions of his club Leeds. Barry misses the game due to a one match suspension (5 yellow cards) and with Bouma out with a knee injury, Jlloyd - a target of Bolton and Charlton according to recent reports - will make a rare start. (from) Sorensen, Taylor, Hughes, Delaney, Mellberg, Ridgewell, Samuel, McCann, Bakke, Milner, Davis, Angel, Baros, Moore, Gardner, Whittingham, Hendrie.
He's been in outstanding form as centre back in recent games.
Alan Pardew is reportedly going to give Yaniv Katan his first start in the Premiership. Yossi Benayoun will have a late fitness test on his thigh injury but is unlikely to feature. Roy Carroll and Anton Ferdinand are expected to be back in contention. Sheringham is out. (from) Carroll, Hislop, Bywater, Dailly, Repka, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Collins, Konchesky, Clarke, Reo-Coker, Mullins, Fletcher, Benayoun, Etherington, Noble, Newton, Harewood, Zamora, Aliadiere, Katan.
Everyone said he was a donkey. Everyone said he couldn't score in a brothel. Then he went and scored a hattrick against us and 'everyone' went quiet! Proved he can score given the chance. Mind you, so has Sven, but I guess that is another story.
