MATCH QUOTES

โ€œItโ€™s been a good week. The players want to dedicate it to the fans. They think the fans have had some hard times here and everyone at the club realises we are going to need them. We are going to need them every step of the way. โ€œI thought both sendings off were harsh, I thought the referee had a good game apart from those two huge decisions. โ€œI have seen Villa Park get going twice now and it is special. It needs to get going a few more times. Iโ€™m pleading with our fans - we need you. It isnโ€™t always going to be rosy in the garden. โ€œIf we win the FA Cup but get relegated it will be a failure.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 7 March 2015.
