ON THIS DAY

Steve Bruceโ€™s Villa lose for the third game in succession and suffer a first defeat to Wolves since May 1978. Scarcely believable is that the manager of the away team is one Paul Lambert - the real architect of Villa's descent to the second tier. As usual lacking class he was already gaslighting his new club's supporters and would end the season below Villa - despite the club finishing in their lowest placing for over forty years.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI donโ€™t think we deserved anything really if Iโ€™m being brutally honest. There wasnโ€™t much in it I have to say. But weโ€™ve got to show a little bit more quality, certainly going forward in areas where we seemed a little bit short if that is the right word. It seems to be our Achilles heel at the moment but weโ€™ve not created much again. โ€œIt is one thing we have to work on and get better at but we need to improve all over the pitch if Iโ€™m being honest because weโ€™ve just huffed and puffed all night and not produced anything of any worthwhile quality.โ€ Steve Bruce, Saturday, 14 January 2017.
