MATCH QUOTES

โ€Last week, the performance at Watford merited more, but we built on that, worked tirelessly all afternoon and the supporters came with us. I thought the reaction was brilliant. The Villa fans have got a big part to play in getting this club back to the Premier League. โ€œIt has been difficult to play in a relegation battle, but we have got some outstanding footballers and I thought we coped with them today.โ€ Eric Black, Saturday, 7 May 2016.
