MATCH QUOTES

โ€œKodjia can be frustrating but his goals are incredible. He came up with another two goals against Wednesday. That makes 15 for the season and he has been a big plus for us. โ€œI have to get a team here at Villa to mount a challenge. A club like Villa has got to be in the top end of this division. โ€œWe will forgive mistakes with the honesty coming through. But we have to take our chances better. It cost us against Huddersfield in midweek and it could have cost us against Wednesday.โ€ Steve Bruce, Saturday, 11 March 2017.
