O'Neill taking no chances against Wolves

22 October 2009 04:55
Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill will take the challenge of Wolves this weekend every bit as seriously as he did Chelsea seven days earlier. After a 3-1 win at Anfield and draw at home to Manchester City, Villa again proved their credentials by coming from behind to see off Carlo Ancelotti's side 2-1 last Saturday. The fight for a place in the top six of the Barclays Premier League, never mind the top four, will be harder than ever this season - so Villa know they must not under-perform against opponents like Wolves. O'Neill promises Villa will not fail for want of effort. "We will be up for the game. We can still lose the match, but we will be right for the game," said the Villa boss. The players have gained a lot of confidence from the Manchester City and Chelsea matches. "We`re ready for it. I`ve already said to the players how difficult the game is going to be. They will be as ready for the game as we possibly can. That might not be good enough on the day - but they will be ready for it."
