Aston Villa new manager Steve Bruce has raised issues regarding fitness at the club.

“I can understand now why they concede late. It’s blatantly obvious. We’ll go to work on that. It’s very difficult in this league as obviously we’re playing again on Tuesday. We’ll do eveythig we possibly can to make us better equipped to go and play in the Championship,” he added.
