ON THIS DAY

Tim Sherwood's Villa end a run of three victories with a third defeat in five Premier League games under the new boss courtesy of a late Swansea strike.

The reverse leaves Villa just three points clear of the drop zone with eight to play underlining the huge job Sherwood has to do to overcome the mess Lambert had left behind.

They had now failed to score in 17 of their 30 Premier League matches in this season and won just three of fifteen at home.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œObviously itโ€™s disappointing to lose late on. Itโ€™s the second time weโ€™ve done that since Iโ€™ve been here and itโ€™s a major setback for us. โ€œIn the first half they were the better side and we showed them too much respect, but in the second half it looked like we might nick a goal. Thereโ€™s a lot of hard work to do and this is a reality check for us but weโ€™re still confident weโ€™re going to be OK. We donโ€™t think itโ€™s done yet. โ€œItโ€™s difficult to not be down-hearted, but when I took over we were in a hole, there were no smiles and morale was low. The spirit is a lot better in the camp and we have to make sure we donโ€™t take this defeat too hard.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 21 March 2015.
