MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€œThereโ€™s a lot of work to be done. The hardest part in management is always getting over a relegation. Weโ€™ve now won only four games in 55, which is an alarming statistic, but itโ€™s my job to find a formula to win. โ€œWe did well with all the late blocks and saves we made, but we tired badly, which was alarming. โ€œIt would have been nice to bring big Rudy Gestede on, or Jordan Ayew, and make an attacking substitution. But we had two struggling with calf injuries, Micah Richards and Tommy Elphick. Theyโ€™ve now got no chance of making it on Tuesday night (at Reading).โ€
