The Clarets and Blues have another fixture ahead of their Second City Derby game, but Jack Grealish is already having nightmares before the match.
Aston Villa host Birmingham City in the Second City Derby on the 25th of November. Though the outing is nearly three weeks away, the hype surrounding it is fantastic and the Villa fans are jubilant about their chances of winning Dean Smith’s first such outing in charge. However, there is one worry that is troubling the fans as well as the players- that being Jack Grealish’s disciplinary record.
The 23 year old is on a disciplinary tightrope and faces a one match suspension upon receiving a yellow card against Derby County in Villa’s next game over the coming weekend. As much as the faithful of the Clarets, Grealish is worried about his chances of missing the biggest game for Aston as well and has insisted that he will try his best to ensure a clean slate ahead of the Derby.
"“They are all big games you don’t get any easy games in this league, every game is a tough game, if you are playing someone at the bottom it’s a tough game,” Grealish told the club’s television channel. “We are just going to take each game as it comes. For me personally I need not to get another yellow card to miss any, I have got one left now for about another four or five games, that’s my aim. That’s the one I am looking forward to the most.”"
