MATCHDAY QUOTES

"You have to be satisfied with the victory but I am annoyed that we let them back into it with a last minute goal.

โ€We should have been out of sight but now they will come to our place with a bit of hope.

"I think the only outfield players who haven't scored this season are Ray Houghton and Earl Barrett.

โ€œI want goals to come from everywhere."

Ron Atkinson.



"When you score as infrequently as me, you take anything that comes along.

โ€My shot was going in the far corner, but it hit someone on the knee and the 'keeper got a hand to it and knocked It in the other side.

"But as far as I'm concerned it was my goal because the ball was going in anyway."

Shaun Teale.

*Birmingham Evening Mail*
Thursday, 24 September 1992

It was always going to be an anti-climax after Saturdayโ€™s super show but Villa were hardly complaining last night as they took a massive stride towards the Coca Cola Cupโ€™s third round.

Without ever scaling the heights of their 4-2 Liverpool romp, Ron Atkinsonโ€™s men left the
Manor Ground with the quiet satisfaction of a job well done.

Villa simply possessed too much class for an Oxford outfit who battled gamely but were a clear second in terms of quality.

True, Joey Beauchampsโ€™ 88th minute goal kept Oxfordโ€™s hopes of a possible upset when the sides meet again at Villa Park in two weeksโ€™ time.

But it will be a second leg catastrophe if Atkinsonโ€™s side allow their advantage to evaporate.

Their control was such that they could even afford the luxury of an off night by ยฃ2.3m striker Dean Saunders, who left the business of putting the ball in the net to central defenders Paul McGrath and Shaun Teale.

McGrath headed home powerfully at the second attempt after Garry Parkerโ€™s 53rd minute corner and a Kevin Richardson free kick paved the way for a bizarre second on 72 minutes.

Tealeโ€™s drive was heading towards one corner until keeper Paul Lee diverted it into the other.

VILLA boss Ron Atkinson is ready to hand stalwart goalkeeper Nigel Spink a new contract.

Spink, in the last year of his current contract, is having talks with Atkinson and hopes to agree a new deal with the club at some point.

The move comes just seven months after 34-year-old Spink was on the verge of leaving Villa after failing to win his place back from Les Sealey.

Atkinson was thought to be ready to listen to offers for Villa's longest serving player - 1982 European Cup hero Spink came to the Midlands from non-league Chelmsford City in 1977.

But Spink regained his place in March when Sealey picked up a four-match suspension.

He has been ever-present so far this season.

"I am now waiting for the manager to come back with a firm offer, but I definitely want to sign I'd like to see my career out here.

"There was a time when my future seemed In jeopardy, but things have turned my way again. The manager's used to me and I'm used to the manager."

Atkinson would not reveal full details but said:

"We have had talks, and we will have future talks. It is fair to say that I am prepared to extend his contract but I don't discuss details.โ€
