Villa put in a significantly improved performance after recent games but lose at Old Trafford as Newcastle win at St Jamesโ€™ Park and the seemingly inevitable finally happens, Villa fall into the drop zone, one point from safety with two games to play. Meanwhile it is revealed that one of the rare form players this campaign, John Sleeuwenhoek, is in dispute with the club ahead of his contract expiry at the end of the season.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

"There will be some weeding out [of players].

"We must acquire some powerful, forceful players.

"Positive, not pretty, football is what brings results these days.

"It's up to to the players now. No-one else can save them from going down."

Dick Taylor fails to inspire confidence.
