MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was a typical ferocious derby game, but it was a fair result. We showed a sort of resilience. โ€œGaryโ€™s got a very decent Championship side here, a bit similar to the Birmingham side I had here. Theyโ€™re up and at you, and thatโ€™s why theyโ€™re up at the top end. โ€œWherever we go, weโ€™re Aston Villa and people want to turn us over because of who we are and what we are. Iโ€™m proud of the way we performed and got a result.โ€ Steve Bruce, Sunday, 30 October 2016.
