KEY MAN

Charles N'Zogbia can make no impact as Villa are held to a second goalless draw in three under Alex McLeish, Saturday, 27 August 2011.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought it was a terrific second-half display. โ€œBut Mickโ€™s changes took the sting out of us a bit as some of our players began to tire.โ€ Alex McLeish. โ€œThey pumped us for 10-15 minutes in the second half. โ€œI took the two wide players off to stiffen it up a bit and I thought we were then the better side in the later stages. Would I take a point at Villa against [Darren] Bent, [Emile] Heskey, [Charles] Nโ€™Zogbia, Agbonlahor? Too right I would. It wasnโ€™t going our way, I had to change the course of the game, which we did.โ€ Mick McCarthy, Wolves Manager.
