MATCH QUOTES

"While Villa will be disappointed not to have won, the result has extended their unbeaten league run to 10 matches. The clouds of doubt over John Gregoryโ€™s future as manager have now dispersed and, while Villa may struggle to earn a Uefa Cup place through their league position, an FA Cup semi-final against Bolton Wanderers ought to see them at Wembley in May."
