Steve Bruce Confident of Aston Villa’s Promotion Chances Next Season

Aston Villa have been one of the inform teams in the Championship after having taken four wins in the last five games. They have been even better in terms of form over the last nine matches.

A run of seven wins in these matches has led to the club moving into the 11th spot in the Championship table. It has been a huge improvement from the club, which appointed manager Steve Bruce as the replacement for Roberto di Matteo back in October. While results did not show an immediate improvement, the former Hull City manager has been making a lot of noise about promotion over the last few weeks.

The club’s aim to win a fifth consecutive league game ended with a 1-1 draw with Burton Albion. Even then, the club have been able to move one step closer towards the play-off places. There are only five games left in the campaign and Aston Villa are 11 points behind Sheffield Wednesday.

Richards believe in Aston Villa

Micah Richards believe that Aston Villa can challenge for promotion this season and it is up to the players to give their best on the pitch.

He said that the Championship table could change quickly in the Championship with the number of games that they play and it is up to the team to improve their game.

He admitted that it had not been an easy season for them as they have failed to be consistent at times. He believes that Aston Villa can play some great football, but the problem is that they often lose concentration and concede some cheap goals.

He said that Aston Villa has the important players to push for promotion and that they only have to believe in themselves.
