Aston Villa’s official Twitter account has posted quotes from manager Steve Bruce, who is hoping that his side can use last weekend’s victory over Derby County as a springboard for a run of good form, starting with victory over Bristol City.
Aston Villa beat Derby County 1-0 at Villa Park on the weekend, courtesy of a goal by James Chester, and Steve Bruce is hoping that this could inspire the confidence to enable the Villains to win again tonight.
Relegation threatened Bristol City travel to Villa Park tonight and they will be desperate to pick up three points after blowing a 2 goal lead to draw 2-2 with Newcastle United on the weekend.
Ahead of the game, Bruce said:
“We needed a result at the weekend and we got it.
It meant something to the lads and now it’s about building confidence.”
Just one point in 2017 had seen Villa drop towards the relegation zone but last weekend’s win lifted them 8 points clear and they will be looking to extend that gap with another win tonight.
