Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has come out fighting ahead of a proposed fans' protest before Sunday's home game with Manchester City and insisted: "I'll get it right at this club."

The 'Vital Villa' fans' website posted a message earlier this week calling on supporters to voice their feelings an hour before the meeting with the current Barclays Premier League leaders.

But McLeish has thanked the majority of fans for their backing of his players in what he admits was always going to be a season of transition with Villa hovering around midtable. He said: "I know there were a few Villa fans at the start of the season expressed dissent at me becoming a manager."
