There was reason for both frustration and joy on Saturday evening as we fought back for a well deserved point against Manchester United at Villa Park. United had their moments, but both goals were totally avoidable errors again and with greater chances, our second half performance in particular could’ve seen us take a valuable three points against the 14 man side.

As it is, we’ll take the point and move on, hoping that we can put in a 90 minute performance sooner rather than later. Most of the players had mixed games in fairness given the differences across the halves and took their share of praise and criticism and although some fans felt Matty Cash had a quiet game, he actually registered more tackles across the 90 (seven) than anyone else on the pitch.
Quite the way to mark his 50th appearance for us following his £15 odd million arrival from Nottingham Forest back in September 2020.
He’s quickly become a fan favourite and if he can add some greater consistency to his crossing, the 24-year-old (now Polish international) could significantly improve his game further and become a greater asset for us.
