‘They deserve the chance’ – Aston Villa fans on Twitter urge Bruce to trust talented duo

The Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern are in serious danger of seeing their club’s season go off the rails if it hasn’t already. Poor results over the last two weeks have led to the fans looking elsewhere for ideas, and they may have found it in their U23 side. Forwards Rushian Hepburn-Murphy and Callum O’Hare have netted seven goals between them in their four games for Villa’s U23 side and the young Villains have won their last six games in a row.

Steve Bruce’s senior squad could take some inspiration from the prolific young duo as the club has only managed one goal in their last 270 minutes of football, losing to QPR and Bolton before being held to a goalless draw against Hull. The recent form of Villa has come as a big shock considering that prior to their 3-1 home loss to QPR, The Villains had bludgeoned the League leaders Wolves 4-1, scoring three goals in 28 second-half minutes. With Villa’s automatic promotion hopes all but over, the Birmingham club will be hoping they can gain some momentum ahead of the playoffs at the end of the season.

If the club continues on their disappointing run of form, they’ll have to look elsewhere for goals. That’s where young Hepburn-Murphy and O’Hare come in. The pair has scored seven goals between them in their last four appearances and look lethal when deployed together. The pair would not look amiss in England’s second-flight given their current hot-streak and tonight’s game against struggling Reading at Villa Park would provide a risk-free opportunity for the two youngsters to show the fans what they’re capable of.
