All the build up to Villa v West Ham match tomorrow at the silly o’clock 1:30 kick off time.

Martin O’Neill is calling for a re-focus on the league after the cup adventures telling the official site: ‘We have some very fine players. Some players are playing exceptionally well – maybe the best they have ever played. That gives us all encouragement. Some of the performances have been just immense. Maybe that’s why we are hanging in there in the league. Now we’ve got this West Ham game, which is a big match for us. We looked very fresh in the game against Blackburn – and it might have helped to have had that little break – but this match is coming up now.’

Full interview:

Villa v West Ham official site match pack: Meanwhile former Hammer James Collins says his old team will stay up but he’ll not be looking to give them any help on Sunday. He told AVTV: ‘It’s a game I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I wasn’t here long when we played them at Upton Park and was disappointed with the result that night. I’m looking forward to it. I spoke to a few of the boys already and they are looking forward to it so it should be a good game.’

He also says despite having mates there and the fact they have had injury nightmares, he is a Villa player now and he wants us to win, no question.

Meanwhile MON has explained that Emile Heskey might be a doubt tomorrow after picking up another hamstring problem. He told the Birmingham Mail that he came off in the second half against Blackburn Rovers the other day because his hamstrings were ‘tight again’.
