ON THIS DAY

A genuine โ€œyoung ladโ€, forward Gabby Agbonlahor made a goalscoring debut for Villa aged 19 after joining as a schoolboy and signing professional forms with the club in July 2005. Meanwhile, David Oโ€™Leary, who had now been in post for 2 years and 9 months claimed โ€œIโ€™m trying to do the best with all I have gotโ€ as if he had inherited an unknown squad the previous week, as Villa lose for the third successive game for the first time this season and now have just eight Premier League wins in the last 35 games under Oโ€™Learyโ€™s leadership.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe are conceding too many easy goals from long balls. No matter how well you are playing, if you are doing that, you are giving yourselves a mountain to climb in every game. โ€œNobody is safe until you get the 40 points plus and we have got to gather them up.โ€ On Villa fans chanting against him, he added: โ€œIt comes to us all and we have got to get on with it. Iโ€™m trying to do the best with all I have got and Iโ€™ll continue to do that.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
