DUNNE: WE CAN’T BE COWARDS
RICHARD DUNNE fears Aston Villa are facing a relegation scrap – unless they start to show more courage.
The Villa skipper is bracing himself for a hectic festive period with a warning that his team-mates have to man up – or risk going down.
Villa have come under intense fire from fans for their spineless performance against Manchester United at the weekend.
“It is time that we had a bit more belief in ourselves,” said Dunne.
“We are waiting to work our way into games and having a bit too much respect for our opponents.
“We have got the top teams in a row before Christmas and it is a hard programme with a lot of games.
“When Liverpool and Arsenal come to Villa Park we have got to believe we can challenge them.”
