ON THIS DAY

With Villa clearly struggling in this their second season in the Championship, Steve Bruce pulls off a real transfer coup in signing West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass on loan to the end of the campaign.

Snodgrass made his Villa debut as a 60โ€™ substitute but could not help Villa make the breakthrough against future Villa boss Dean Smithโ€™s talented Brentford side. As a result Villa tumbled back to 18th in the table.

Future Villa centre forward Ollie Watkins lined up for Brentford.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce:* โ€œIt was frustrating, disappointing and (Iโ€™m) thankful to take a point. Sam Johnstone earned his spurs. โ€œI can readily understand the frustration of the fans as this was arguably the worst we have been since Iโ€™ve been here at Villa in the last nine months. โ€œWe didnโ€™t have any spark, we didnโ€™t do enough with or without the ball. We looked jaded and I take responsibility for that. I should have known better after having 90% of the team away on international duty.โ€ --- *Brentford manager Dean Smith:* โ€œIt was a good point but we should have collected three points. โ€œWe controlled the football and in the second half created three big chances. Unfortunately Sam Johnstone, who I had (on loan) at Walsall, kept us at bay. โ€œWe are an organised team despite losing three big players during the transfer window but I do not think we have diminished the quality of the squad.โ€
