Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has concerns fans' hostility towards him could unsettle his players during games.
The Scot is still to win over the Holte End after his defection from Birmingham City.
He said: "It would be a major disappointment if the fans were to affect the players. We are in the business of results and we need to get results.
"We can play all the good football we want but, if we don't win, the fans will still be unhappy."
