MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œWhile weโ€™ve been unbeaten for a considerable time, youโ€™d be hoping that with two consecutive home games weโ€™d have taken four points.

โ€œBut itโ€™s easier said than done, and weโ€™re still in there fighting.

โ€œIโ€™m genuinely pleased with the effort the players are putting in, and Iโ€™m very pleased with John Carewโ€™s form.

โ€œI think there will be plenty more twists to come in the race for fourth, but our away record is very good and I still think weโ€™re in the race.โ€

Martin Oโ€™Neill.

Sunderland claimed a point to continue their march towards Premier League safety and put a dent in Aston Villaโ€™s Champions League aspirations.

Fraizer Campbell broke the deadlock midway through the first half, beating Brad Friedel with a cool finish after being fed by Kieran Richardson.

John Carew pulled Villa level eight minutes later, neatly volleying home at the far post from Ashley Youngโ€™s cross.

Both sides had chances subsequently, but neither could force a breakthrough.

The eveningโ€™s events hardened the impression of two clubs on contrasting trajectories, for while Villaโ€™s European push continued to falter, Steve Bruceโ€™s resurgent side are finishing the season almost as impressively as they began it.

The facts tell their own story. Though unbeaten in the league in 2010, Villa have now won just three of their 10 games since the turn of the year, drawing the other seven.

Worse yet, this latest damaging stalemate came against a Sunderland side that - for all the upward mobility suggested by a five-game unbeaten run - last won away in the league on the opening
