Ward Replaces Injured Skuse at Villa
Saturday, 11th Feb 2017 14:37

Grant Ward replaces the injured Cole Skuse in midfield in an otherwise unchanged Town side at Aston Villa this afternoon.

Ward took over from Skuse during the first half of last week’s 2-2 home draw with Reading, the former Bristol City man having suffered an achilles injury. Town will again line-up in a 3-5-2 system.

Aston Villa hand a debut to former Swansea full-back Neil Taylor and home debuts to one-time Blue Conor Hourihane, Scott Hogan and Birkir Bjarnason. Striker Keinan Davis, who had a trial with the Town academy at the start of last season, is on the bench.

Villa: Johnstone, Hutton, Elphick, Chester (c), Baker, Taylor, Lansbury, Bjarnason, Hourihane, Kodjia, Hogan. Subs: Bunn, Bacuna, Green, Gardner, Amavi, Adomah, Davis.

Town: Bialkowski, Emmanuel, Chambers (c), Taylor, Berra, Knudsen, Ward, Diagouraga, Huws, Lawrence, McGoldrick. Subs: Gerken, Pitman, Spence, Bru, Sears, Moore, Kenlock.

Great line up, can't fault it. Let's hope MM sends them out with the message to get at them, not sit back and stifle the game. Midfield is looking very positive

Would have Samuel on bench instead of either Sears or Pitman. Otherwise happy.

Kenlock for Knudsen and believe that would be the best team Mick could put out today with available players...Skuse won't be missed. Expecting at least a point today.

Best of luck boys!

Good team.....COYB'S

Hope for a win. Think we can get at least a point today. Villa seem to have bought as many players as possible without building a team yet. I'm gonna go 1-1 draw.

That's a good attacking team.... Go attack!!

Good support from the Town supporters.

Agree Timmy H but think Kenlock not fully fit.

No lose there,

50 mins up 4 shots on target v 16 shots on lot are easily pleased...FFS! Amazingly fantastic attacking team. Law of averages will says Villa will find net sooner rather than later
