Steve Bruce has led Aston Villa to a mini-revival since his appointment three games ago, with the Midlands yet to lose under the experienced stewardship of their new boss.
Now six points shy of the play-off spots, Bruce needs to continue this run of form and revitalise the players into a promotion push.
Good performances lead to confidence and the former Manchester United man has ticked that objective off already, but others need a bit of love to perform.
Different characters need different support and some members of the Aston Villa squad may be in need of a confidence boost which, once received, could lead them to become a key part in the club’s season.
Considering the nature of their season in the Premier League just a few months ago, the ex-Sunderland and Wigan coach needs to restore feelings of optimism back into the ranks.
After a fiery draw with arch-rivals Birmingham City, it’s important to keep the relative momentum going at Villa Park.
