MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€I thought it was a very, very good game. I thought we were very, very open in the first half, which we addressed better in the second half. But overall, if you come to Hillsborough and score four times, then you deserve to win. When when we arrived at the club, we wanted to instil tenacity because it probably wasnโ€™t there before. To have it and to get it with a group of players who are on the same hymn sheet as the supporters is important. โ€œFor too long now, the supporters havenโ€™t really associated with the team because of whatโ€™s happened to the club. I believe theyโ€™re enjoying watching the team now, thereโ€™s association with supporters and the team, which is important.โ€
