Abraham warns against complacency

9th April 2019, 14:16 by Bobbie Jackson

Aston Villa loanee Tammy Abraham has warned his teammates about the danger of being complacent when they face Rotherham.

Abraham will be looking to add to his impressive 23-goal haul when Villa head to the New York Stadium on Wednesday, before lining up against former employers Bristol City on Saturday.

Their form of late suggests, winning six in a row, suggests they should have too much for Rotherham and it may be tempting to start thinking ahead to Saturday's game against play-off rivals.

However, Abraham insists they can't take the Millers for granted and has urged Villa to put in a professional performance.

Abraham said: "We cannot take Rotherham for granted. We need to go there all guns blazing like we did in the final 10 minutes on Saturday.

"We have to start like that and take our chances. The game against Bristol City is going to be a big one for the boys and for me, against my old team."
