ON THIS DAY

Villa reverse the script and after seeing an injury time equaliser rob them of a win last time out, an 89' James Collins goal earns Gรฉrard Houllier a first win in six. Dig a little deeper though and visitors Blackpool made ten changes and almost forced a draw as concerns mounted that at team - minus only James Milner - sat 10th in the table with 16 points after 12 games having sat fifth with 21 points 12 months previously under Martin O'Neill.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe were a bit anxious, a bit nervous because we needed the points. โ€œThe first-half I would say was dreadful but the second-half we were better. โ€œWe took more responsibility to attack, created more chances and played a more exciting game.โ€ Gรฉrard Houllier. โ€œTo make 10 changes might have looked crazy. Weโ€™ve got four games in 12 days and the lads Iโ€™ve played every week are struggling to keep up the level. โ€œThat was a test for us and our strength in depth and a test for the ones who havenโ€™t played and Iโ€™m bursting with pride because they were fantastic. โ€œI felt their performance more than at least deserved a point. The whole club has been represented magnificently.โ€ Ian Holloway, Blackpool manager .
