Soccer – Villa rise drives Bruce on

Boss Steve Bruce says his Aston Villa outfit need to try and return to the Premier League as quickly as possible, ideally next season. Bruce took charge of the Villans in October last year and led them to 13th place in the Championship, with the target for next season a challenge to return to the top-flight at the second time of asking. And Bruce is eager to add to his record of four promotions from the Championship, having previously guided both Hull City and Birmingham City up to Premier League on two occasions. He told his club's official website: "I have managed to get promotion four times - what I would do to make it five is probably blatant to everyone who comes across me. "I am fiercely determined we will get there. I will do my utmost to make sure it's this season if we can. We don't want to be in the Championship. The quicker we are out of it the better." Villa can be backed at 15/8 with bet365 to gain promotion next season
