MATCH SUMMARY

Villa record a seventh goalless game and sixteenth draw under Alex McLeish to make it just seven wins in thirty six Premier League games as Villa sit 15th in the table three points clear of relegation with two to play and a superior goal difference meaning only heavy defeats over the next two games would realistically relegated free-falling Villa.

KEY MAN

Richard Dunne hoofs and Villa secure a point that may keep Villa a Premier League side despite just seven wins in thirty six Premier League games under Alex McLeish, Saturday, 28 April 2012.

ON THIS DAY

Alex McLeish's Villa make it eight games without a win and a sixteenth draw in 36 matches as they remain 15th, three points clear of the drop zone but with a vastly superior goal difference to the clubs around them. Relegation therefore looks unlikely but at least another point is needed to make certain. Meanwhile, Samir Carruthers made his final appearance for Villa aged 19 before moving on to MK Dons in August 2014 for a fee of ยฃ225,000. Carruthers had made a total of 3 substitute appearances for Villa all of which came in March and April 2012.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe certainly donโ€™t think itโ€™s the worst point in the world because itโ€™s still in our hands and weโ€™ve still got two games to go. โ€œOne of the guys in the dressing room will get the goal that matters for us over the next two games, Iโ€™m positive of that.โ€ Alex McLeish.
