MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThat was horrible to see the punters running on the pitch โ€“ itโ€™s from the dark ages that. โ€œWe donโ€™t condone that at all. โ€œI know we have not beaten Villa for a while, and the fans were treating it like a cup final. But when you see flares being thrown into the crowd itโ€™s not something you want to be associated with. โ€œFans shouldnโ€™t come on to the pitch at any time; thatโ€™s the disappointing aspect, and that sours it a bit for me.โ€ Alex McLeish, Birmingham manager.
