Aston Villa fans react to Grealish fitness update

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce revealed on Monday afternoon that Jack Grealish would be assessed ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Sunderland in the Championship.

Grealish has not played for Villa since the derby against Birmingham City on February 11, with a calf problem keeping the attacker on the sidelines.

Villa’s clash with Queens Park Rangers at the weekend was postponed due to the bad weather, and it had been thought that Grealish would return to action against Sunderland on Tuesday night.

Bruce did not rule the 22-year-old out of action, but also admitted that he is unsure whether the Englishman would be able to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light following a spell on the sidelines.

The Villa fans would of course welcome Grealish back into the fold, but there are those that would rather the attacker was rested ahead of Saturday’s home game against Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.
