MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€œWe did exceptionally well for an hour, then went a bit sloppy and a bit negative, and possibly thought it was going to be too easy. We had two or three unbelievable chances to make it four and didnโ€™t take them, and that gave them a bit of a lifeline. โ€œThey had one or two chances themselves, but all in all, it was a comfortable victory and weโ€™ll move onto the next one. โ€œWeโ€™re coming to the end of January, weโ€™re in with a shout - there or thereabouts - and thereโ€™s a bit of confidence and belief coming. We looked a very decent team at times today.โ€
