MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThis is is only the first shoots of a recovery. We are hopefully heading in the right direction because a club like Aston Villa needs to be at the top end of the division. โ€œCardiff are difficult. They are right in your face and, if we hadnโ€™t shown the resistance we displayed, it could have been a difficult afternoon. โ€œYou have to be brave facing a side like Cardiff. It was a typical performance from a Neil Warnock side.โ€ Steve Bruce, Saturday, 26 November 2016.
