Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has faith in his kids going into tonight's crunch game with Bolton Wanderers.

He believes Villa's promising crop of kids are fearless.

McLeish said: "This is probably the worst I've seen it in terms of injuries but the young players are capable though.

"In fact, it works the other way because these guys are trying to forge their careers and show the fans they are capable of playing for this club."
