Mjallby is wary of over-confidence in the Celtic squad following their recent 7-0 thrashing of Hearts at Tynecastle in the Scottish Cup.

"It's not easy for them as they are a very young team and confidence-wise they have been struggling a wee bit lately," Mjallby said.

"But the main thing is not for us to go in and think it's going to be 7-0 all over again. That's the worrying thing and something we need to press home, as we can't go into the game thinking it will be easy.

"It's never easy to win football games. We really need to be spot on, try to play with the tempo with which we have done lately away from home, make sure our passing is right and our full-backs are going forward.

"Goals change games, so obviously if we are solid at the back then we can push forward and focus on going ahead attacking-wise.

"We will really have to work hard and make sure we earn the right to play our football.

"We always respect everyone who comes here to play us. But we know we have good enough players, and if they play well enough, we should get the three points."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
