Alex McLeish has tipped Andy Weimann to step up to the plate following the injury to Darren Bent.

Weimann has received glowing praise recently from Bent for his finishing prowess and following his two recent hatticks in the second string McLeish has told the Official Site that Andy has been ‘knocking on the door’ of the first team for quite a while, and this could be his chance to impress.

I wonder where, on the right wing? We can put N’Zogbia through the middle that way!

‘Andreas has definitely been knocking on the door. He’s hungry, wants to score, has a great attitude and he’s got clever movement. Is he lightning fast? Maybe that’s not his strength, but certainly he’s got that sharpness, he’s a sharp thinker. I think he will have a good career and hopefully he can light up Villa Park.’

If Andy gets his chance we certainly need him to take it, but given he is the back up along with Delfouneso this is where it would’ve been sensible to have brought them on as a sub during games to bring them on further, rather than leaving it to the last moment where they can’t afford to sink in games.

Good luck Andy.

That said, does anybody not expect Gabby to stay on the wing and Heskey to go through the middle as our goal threat?
