MATCH SUMMARY

Villa are beaten for only the second time in fifteen Premier League games as the notoriously goal shy former Villain Darius Vassell scores his fifth goal against his old club.

KEY MAN

Gavin McCann scores a goal even rarer than a Darius Vassell strike in claret and blue to reduce the deficit on 66' but Villa lose for a second time in fifteen Premier League games under Martin O'Neill, Wednesday, 29 November 2006.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI think Mr Lerner has seen a number of our games now. He has watched us do well and not so cleverly. โ€œHe will be disappointed but he knows what needs to be done. โ€œThereโ€™s still a lot to be done to even become a decent Premiership side. We didnโ€™t play well enough and frailties can be shown up on nights like this.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
