Ban threat McGinn may be rested

By Graham Hill

VILLA boss Dean Smith admits he would consider resting Scotland midfielder John McGinn – to stop him being suspended for the play-offs.

McGinn is currently on 13 bookings and two more in the League would result in a three match suspension.

If he were to collect a 15th in the final game of the season against Norwich then he would miss a potential three play-off games.

Smith said: “It’d depend on where we were in the league at that time and whether we were mathematically certain of the play-offs.

“If he gets one on Friday against Bolton, I’ll start worrying then. At the moment, I don’t need to.
