VILLA fan Joe Lolley would not think twice about denying his boyhood heroes a place in the Premier League.
The Nottingham Forest forward sparked a dramatic late comeback against Swansea City with two corners that both produced goals.
It was a win that kept Martin O’Neill’s side in the play-off hunt – and a possible meeting with Villa.
Lolley grew supporting Villa when O’Neill was in charge.
But says the fan in him disappears when it comes to aiming for a top flight spot.
Villa sealed their fifth successive win with victory over Blackburn on Saturday.
And Forest are just two points outside the top six with a trip to Rotherham coming up.
Lolley said: “I was a Villa fan when I was a kid. But now I have to concentrate on Nottingham Forest, that’s all I’m concerned about.
“If both teams could go up then, in an ideal world, that’d be great.
“Of course I enjoy seeing them do well and I don’t want to see them struggling.
“But in terms of the season, I’ll be honest, I only care about what we do and if we beat them in the Play-Off Final, then that’d be absolutely brilliant.”
