MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€Forest got a bit of a break just when they needed it just after half time, and then of course itโ€™s all about the tenacity to win the game. And then thankfully a little bit of quality from Conor with the free-kick. I think thatโ€™s the fifth goal this season so terrific from him. Towards the end itโ€™s a bit frantic as you can imagine because weโ€™re still a bit edgy after the start weโ€™ve had. But that will breed a bit of confidence.โ€
