ON THIS DAY

Steve Bruceโ€™s Villa lose for the sixth time in seven games in 2017 and in so doing extend their worst run of the season. As a result Villa drop to 16th and a second successive relegation is not impossible to imagine, neither is a third manager of the season as Bruce clearly begins to struggle with the scale of the job. In truth it already looks like it will require a very quick gelling of the recently and expensively recruited players, rather than anything from the bench, that will stop the rot. Meanwhile, left back Neil Taylor made his Villa debut aged 28 after joining from Swansea City in exchange for Jordan Ayew in January 2017.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œItโ€™s tough at the minute. We certainly didnโ€™t deserve to lose. We had some really good opportunities and didnโ€™t take them.

โ€œOnce again we made one mistake and we were punished. Hopefully we have fallen as far as we can because the next few games are going to be important.

โ€œIt is time to batten down the hatches and face the flak. But we need to take some of the chances we are creating.

โ€œThe Ipswich goal was an individual mistake. Unfortunately every time we make a mistake we are punished. We now have to find some form to get a win to restore the confidence in the team.โ€

Steve Bruce, Saturday, 11 February 2017.

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 11 February 2017

Emyr Huws scored a late winning goal as Ipswich Town ended their five-match winless run in the Championship with a dramatic victory at Aston Villa.*

The on-loan Cardiff City midfielder turned home David McGoldrickโ€™s cross for his first goal for Town, to leave Steve Bruceโ€™s Villa winless in eight.

Huwsโ€™ effort came moments after McGoldrick had cleared a header from Villa forward Scott Hogan off the line.

Birkir Bjarnason had earlier gone even closer for Villa, hitting the bar.

On a day when Neil Taylor made his debut, and fellow January signings Conor Hourihane, Hogan and Bjarnason made their home debut, Villaโ€™s first home defeat of the season sent them slipping to 16th in the table, seven points clear of safety.

Ipswich climbed above Villa to 13th after their first league victory over Villa since March 1994.

After Hourihane had tested Ipswich keeper Bartosz Bialkowski early on, Bjarnason then lashed his shot against the angle of bar and post.

But after a goalless first half, Ipswich improved, Jordan Spence going just wide from a set-piece before McGoldrick cut in from the left to slide a low ball into the middle which former Birmingham City loan man Huws finished off.

McGoldrick tried to double the away sideโ€™s lead, but his ambitious curling effort went just over the bar.
