MATCH SUMMARY

For the second successive season, Martin O'Neill oversees a premature exit from Europe mostly due to his team selections. This time round however it was less a surrender than a case of indifference but given the mood of the tetchy Villa boss few wanted to make an issue of his most pronounced achilles heel.

KEY MAN

Villa contemplate their Europa League exit on away goals, Thursday, 27 August 2009.

ON THIS DAY

Villa record a second successive win but it's not enough to overcome their first leg deficit and as a result they exit the Europa League at the first hurdle. Meanwhile, defender Shane Lowry made his second and final appearance for Villa aged 20 before moving on to Millwall in January 2012 for a fee of ยฃ243,000

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe should have got through. โ€œWe should have had the game out of sight before they scored. โ€œWe had a number of chances to go from 2-0 to 3-0 and that would have sealed the tie. Iโ€™m desperately disappointed. โ€œIt would have been great experience again particularly for the younger players. โ€œLast season, despite the way it ended for us in the Uefa Cup, I thought we had some splendid nights at Villa Park. โ€œI will miss those but we have to get on with it now and we will come again.โ€ โ€œThey were both penalties and the one time the ref did pretty well in the game was to allow the play to continue for the first penalty after Young was fouled. โ€œAshley was disappointed to miss the penalty. He scored a great one against Liverpool and felt confident about taking it. James converted the second and then we went in front. โ€œWe always felt we needed three goals in the game because there is the possibility of conceding. We had two good chances to seal the game. โ€œI thought the team played very well.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill. --- โ€œWe knew what the score was before and that we might have to score three. โ€œWe had chances to win the game so it was very disappointing. โ€œWe want to win every competition weโ€™re in. Weโ€™ve put out strong teams, weโ€™ve got a bigger squad and more quality to rotate this season. โ€œBut tonight wasnโ€™t good enough and the away goal was a sucker punch - it killed us. โ€œWe won the game but didnโ€™t win the tie and thatโ€™s all that matters. A club like Aston Villa needs European football but we werenโ€™t good enough.โ€ James Milner
