Andre Green delivers Twitter message to Aston Villa players ahead of clash v Rotherham

By Matt Farr

Aston Villa winger Andre Green has delivered a message of support to his side ahead of their trip to Rotherham on Saturday.

Green, who will miss the game through injury, took to his personal Twitter account on Saturday morning to wish his side the best of luck for the tie and express his confidence that they will secure the victory.

The 18-year-old was forced off late on in the victory over Bristol City on Tuesday night with a hamstring injury, and Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has since confirmed that he will be out for at least a month.

Green has impressed for Aston Villa since making his first-team debut almost a year ago, and fans were devastated to hear of their latest injury setback.

He has already made 15 senior appearances for the Midlands club this term, earning four Championship starts.

But he joins a growing list of absentees at Villa Park, with first-team stars Scott Hogan (ankle), Gary Gardner and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy (both ankle), Gabriel Agbonlahor (hamstring), and Leandro Bacuna (suspension) already out of the Rotherham tie.

Aston Villa can extend their winning run to three games with a victory over bottom of the table Rotherham at the New York Stadium.

Steve Bruce’s side are currently 15th in the Championship, but they have an opportunity to jump as high as 13th.
