MATCH SUMMARY

With relegation just a disappointing possibility the game before, Alex McLeish contrives to lose to Bolton at Villa Park to leave Villa just three points above the drop with three to play and in the worst form in the League - without a win in seven - and with only seven wins in thirty five this season.

KEY MAN

Chris Herd and Villa fall to a home defeat against relegation rivals Bolton to leave them in real danger of the drop after just seven wins in thirty five Premier League games under Alex McLeish, Tuesday, 24 April 2012.

ON THIS DAY

Alex McLeish's Villa suffer their most damaging defeat of the season and there is no way back for the embattled and controversially appointed Villa boss. Losing a 13th game of the season leaves Villa in 15th on 36 points and now just 3 points clear of the relegation zone with three to play. Even under Houllier in 2010-11 Villa were 6 points clear with 35 games played and in 13th place with 41 points.

MATCH QUOTES

"Villa took a deserved lead through Stephen Warnock just after the hour - but Bolton were ahead within three minutes as Martin Petrov equalised from the penalty spot and David Ngog swept home a second almost immediately."
