Tammy: It’s up to us at New York

By Graham Hill

TAMMY Abraham is already looking to make it a happy reunion with Bristol City this weekend.

But the 23-goal striker has warned Villa not to underestimate relegation threatened Rotherham.

Villa go to the New York Stadium on Wednesday night searching for a seventh straight win to boost their play-off hopes still further.

But the Millers beat Nottingham Forest on Saturday to severely dent Martin O’Neill’s hopes of a top six place.

And Abraham knows that – even now – there is plenty of work still to be done between now and May.

The on-loan Chelsea striker scored against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and told Villa’s official TV channel: “We have good, exciting games coming up.

“But we can’t take Rotherham for granted. We need to go there all guns blazing. We have to start like we finished this weekend.

“The game against Bristol City will be a big one for the boys – and for me, of course, as they’re my old team. We just have to keep doing our best and keep taking our chances.”

Abraham is still buzzing from the Wednesday game where his goal crowned a 3-1 win over former Villa boss Steve Bruce – the man who signed him on loan last summer.

He added: “It’s unbelievable. You can’t describe those moments.

“This is what takes teams to the next level.

“You might not have the best game. The other team may be dominating.

“But with just moments left in the game, you have to make those opportunities count and take those chances – and we did that.

“I have always believed in the boys and believed in the team. We just needed to get some little things right and that’s what we’ve done.”
