MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo* โ€œObviously we are not happy with the result and the second half as well. Weโ€™ve lost two points. โ€œWe have to work through it. It looks like there is a barrier we have to break through as when we go into a lead weโ€™ve not managed to see it out โ€œWe need to work through it, thereโ€™s no other solution. We will analyse things and talk about it but the only way to overcome it is to go on and win a game 1-0 or 2-1 or whatever it is and see a lead out. โ€œOf course we are conscious [of the gap] but it is still early on. We need a win under our belts and that will help us massively to break some of those barriers we are carrying with us. โ€œThe Championship is a marathon and there are so many games and also if not automatic (promotion) we can go through play-offs as well.โ€ --- *Brentford boss Dean Smith* โ€œMy mates who are Villa fans all asked me if I was going to celebrate and I think that gave them the answer. โ€œIโ€™m from the area and everyone knows I grew up as an Aston Villa fan so itโ€™s a great experience for me. If weโ€™d have lost, it would have meant nothing. โ€œI thought it was the least we deserved in the end, if Iโ€™m honest. I thought we were excellent in the second half and dominated the game. I was disappointed with their goal but I guess thatโ€™s what ยฃ15m gets you. Heโ€™s cut inside and stuck one in the top bin. โ€œI thought to a man we were excellent and in the second half we thoroughly deserved it.โ€
