McLeish expects Warnock response

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish is tipping axed left-back Stephen Warnock to bounce back "stronger than ever" after dropping the England defender for the weekend win at Wolves.

He had been an ever present in the opening 21 Barclays Premier League games this season but a recent dip in form meant he was left out at Molineux to "gather his thoughts."

McLeish, who brought Warnock on at half-time in a reshuffle, said: "Hats off to Stevie on Saturday, he was left out and was excellent. It's not easy getting left out and having to come on. If he had something to prove, he did that."
