There were a number of positives and smiles that could be taken from Aston Villa’s victory over Dynamo Dresden on Saturday, but there were a few concerns and question marks for the faithful.

One was, of course, the goalkeeping error by Jed Steer that gifted them their goal in the 2-1 victory, but the other was the omission of Ivory Coast international striker Jonathan Kodjia.

The Birmingham Mail reported ahead of the game that they understood the 28-year-old was suffering with an injury, and obviously given his lack of game time following his lengthy spell on the sidelines last season that sent a number of fans into a flutter.

There was no confirmation as to whether the injury was serious or simply he’d picked up a knock so not travelling and being involved with the game was simply a precaution.

Given the time of year though plenty of others thought ‘injury’ was transfer window speak for ‘in talks’ with another club ahead of a possible move away given well known Financial Fair Play problems at the club despite our recent takeover.

Time will tell which outcome fans should’ve been worrying about.
