Tammy Abraham apologised to Aston Villa teammates after West Brom draw
Aston Villa are on a brilliant run of six Championship games without a defeat and they are now just four points adrift of the play-off positions.
But Dean Smith’s side will be regretting the 2-2 draw away to West Brom in their last match, as they spurned a number of chances to win the game.
Villa centre-forward Tammy Abraham was a main culprit with a couple of golden opportunities in front of goal that he spurned for his side.
Manager Smith has detailed how the 21-year-old apologised to his teammates in the dressing room after his misses in the 2-2 draw with West Brom.
“We all know he can score goals in this league and he’s doing it again. He will go on and keep getting chances, he’s a very good player. He apologised to the players in the dressing room after the [West Brom] game for missing the big chance,” Smith said in his pre-match press conference, as quoted by the club’s official Youtube account.
Abraham, who is on a season-long loan from Premier League giants Chelsea, is clearly a big member of the dressing room and should have no blame for his recent misses.
The English striker has a phenomenal 11 goals in just 15 league games so far and is indispensable in the starting XI.
His goals are vital to any potential promotion push this campaign and he will earn more points for his team than he will lose them.
Villa host Stoke City on Saturday afternoon in their next Championship matches and it would be no surprise to see Abraham fire them to victory.
