Rushall Olympic v Villa U21: Young guns set for pre-season action


Villa's development squad continue their preparations for the new campaign tonight with another pre-season workout against non-league opposition.

Gordon Cowans and his young side will make the short trip to Northern Premier Division outfit Rushall Olympic.

The match takes place at Rushall's Dales Lane ground, with a 7.30pm kick-off.

The claret and blues are unbeaten in pre-season so far, having earned a 4-1 win over Boldmere St Michaels before playing out a goalless draw against Boston United.

Callum Robinson bagged a brace in the Boldmere clash, with Daniel O'Brien and Jack Grealish also opening their accounts for 2014-15.

Following his lively performance at the Trevor Brown Memorial Ground, Grealish was then included in Paul Lambert's squad for the trip to Mansfield 24 hours later, before joining the first team on the tour of Texas where he got the chance to shine against FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo.

The likes of Robinson, O'Brien, Daniel Johnson, Janoi Donacien and Graham Burke are all likely to feature again tonight against Rushall.

The home side - managed by former West Bromwich Albion midfielder Richard Sneekes - have had mixed results during pre-season so far, winning 6-1 at Heath Hayes and losing 2-0 to Solihull Moors.

Their squad is likely to include ex-Birmingham City and Coventry forward Dele Adebola.
