The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MAN­AGER Steve Bruce says his As­ton Villa side are still a long way away from the fin­ished ar­ti­cle and ex­pects changes to the squad in Jan­uary.

Villa have been on an up­ward curve since his ar­rival in Oc­to­ber.

Bruce said: “The bal­ance of the squad is not quite right. We have just started. Hope­fully, the shoots of re­cov­ery are there. Let’s hope we add a few (play­ers) – we will def­i­nitely lose a few.

“I have six cen­tre for­wards. In that re­spect we have to get the bal­ance of the squad right.”

He says they will have to do the hard yards to make the play-off places.
