MATCH QUOTES

*Villa assistant manager Colin Calderwood* โ€It wasnโ€™t as weโ€™d have wanted, especially in the first half and when itโ€™s not perfect, youโ€™ve got to get through it. We found ourselves on the back foot but we dug in and got through that period and it was an excellent result. Weโ€™ve dug in and got three points away from home out of nothing spectacular.โ€
