Assist(s) | Gareth Barry | 23โ€™ | Jlloyd Samuel | 90โ€™ |

MATCH SUMMARY

The fall out from Doug Ellis' appalling own goal continues to rage as despite a first win in five since John Gregory's departure the game is overshadowed by reports that Villa scorer and much loved Juan Pablo รngel wants out after becoming disillusioned with the running of the club.

KEY MAN

Darius Vassell, late winner
