MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe appearance of the 1982 team gave us a lift. โ€œTheyโ€™ve shown us the way - those were heady days for the Villa. โ€œWe were deserved winners. It was great to play well and win at home as we havenโ€™t done that enough this season. โ€œThis is a day for celebration, but weโ€™ve got miles to go.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
