Steve Bruce has insisted he can get thing right at Aston Villa despite his side slumping to their fourth league defeat in a row with a 3-1 loss at home to Barnsley, according to reports in The Birmingham Mail.
The recent defeat was the club’s sixth loss in seven league games, an abysmal run which has seen them take two points from the last possible 24. As pressure mounts on Bruce the manager insists he’s the right man for the job but is under no illusion about the difficulty of the task at hand.
Bruce said: “I’ve been accused of not caring and my body language is supposed to be c***,”
“But it’s the best club and biggest club I’ve had for 20 years although it’s arguably the toughest to turn around.
“Given time I know for a fact I’ll get it right.”
Villa’s promotion bid is turning into nothing more than a pipe dream as the Midland club now sit 19 points off the play offs, while the threat of a second successive relegation becomes more of a possibility with the team now just seven points off the bottom three, there’s still enough time for Bruce to turn things around and at the very least instill the fans’ confidence back in his ability.
