Dean Smith says Matty Cash will be a “miss” for Villa and dismisses Konsa rumours

Aston Villa vs Leicester City

Aston Villa have been one of the surprise packages of the season and their results against the traditional top six have been impressive with a stunning 7-2 win over Liverpool and a double over Arsenal.

They currently sit in 8th place, but have games in hand on the team above them, and will be looking at closing the gap on the European places. Last time out they were held 0-0 by Brighton and will be looking to improve their performance this weekend.

Leicester City sit in 3rd place on goal difference to Manchester United, four points ahead of Chelsea. Their 3-1 victory over Liverpool last weekend was a statement victory on their ambitions for the rest of the season.

Speaking in his pre match conference Dean Smith has provided an update on his squad, with Kortney Hause (ankle) and Matty Cash (thigh) definitely out.

On Cash Smith said, “He will be a miss, on the whole he has been a very good acquisition for us but we certainly feel we can fill the void.”

There was positive news regarding striker Wesley. The Brazilian striker has been out for over a year with a serious knee injury but is now back at the training ground.

The striker who signed in January 2019 for £22 million scored 5 goals in his first 21 games before suffering the injury against Burnley.

Dean Smith also discussed rumours that Ezri Konsa could be subject to a big money move in the summer.

I will joke with him about it. He’s excelling in his position: he’s been on of our best players this season, very consistent and reliable.” Said Smith
