MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce*

โ€I think we were better when we made the changes. Physically it was important we stood up to the barrage they had, then the longer the game goes on youโ€™re hoping you can produce a bit of quality at the top end of the pitch.

โ€œWeโ€™ve had a really big, big chance in the game, and they did as well just after half-time, but youโ€™re hoping you can take that and come away with the win, which is always nicer than a draw.โ€

*Sky Sports*
Sunday, 29 October 2017

The spoils were shared in the Second City derby as Birmingham and Aston Villa played out a goalless draw in the Sky Bet Championship.

Both sides had a number of chances to score and win the game at St Andrewโ€™s, Jota missing a one-on-one for the Blues and Villa hitting the bar twice late in the second half.

Tensions were high, Glenn Whelan left bloodied after being caught in the face and a host of fan clappers - later denounced by Steve Bruce - thrown onto the pitch, but the result moves Birmingham two points clear of the relegation zone, while Villa stay sixth.

Villa started brighter but Birmingham grew swiftly into the game and created most of the big chances in the first half. They were nearly gifted the opener after 34 minutes by Sam Johnstone, who booted a clearance straight at the onrushing Isaac Vassell, but the ball flew just wide of the post.

Birmingham continued well after the break and had another glorious opportunity to take the lead after 48 minutes as Conor Hourihaneโ€™s weak pass was intercepted by Jota. He then raced through on goal but could only blaze over the bar from 12 yards.

The next big chance fell to Aston Villa as Jonathan Kodjia came within inches of opening the scoring. His header from Albert Adomahโ€™s cross after 63 minutes seemed destined for the top corner, but Tomasz Kuszczak got across brilliantly to deny him with a flying save.

That chance seemed to shift the momentum towards Villa, and they had several more fantastic opportunities to take the lead. John Terry sent a Conor Hourihane free-kick just wide, before both Keinan Davis and Jonathan Kodjia rattled the crossbar in the space of two minutes.

Villa then had a great chance to nick the win with the last kick of the game, but Adomah could only hit his free-kick over the bar.

Man of the match - Glenn Whelan

In a fiercely-contested derby game in which he was left bloodied by a flailing arm at one point, Glenn Whelanโ€™s experience and composure in midfield shone through for Aston Villa, particularly at times in the game when they were under real pressure from Birmingham.
