MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce:* โ€œWe are just about starting in the Championship for me. The winter is upon us and the marathon is starting. But we have made progress from where we were 12 months ago. โ€œWe would like some more points after a poor start but we have dug deep and have only one defeat in 10 games. We are going in the right direction. โ€œI thought John Terry played very well and he is always going to chip in with a few goals.โ€
