| John Gregory has issued a challenge to
Villa keeper Mark Bosnich to come to grips with his injury and play through
the pain barrier in order to be fit against Man Utd on Saturday.
Bosnich has had a freak shoulder injury for the past 2 months, picked up in the Coventry game and it has not responded to treatment in the past few weeks.
Bosnich's understudy Michael Oakes, who has played for the past 2 months, has averaged 3 goals a game conceeded, and is seen by many as the reason for Villa's recent slip of form.
