MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce*

โ€œIn the first half, I thought we had control of it and all that was really missing for myself was the goal. Weโ€™ve had a glorious couple of chances but didnโ€™t take them and the longer the game went on, the more frustrating it got for us.

โ€œIn the second half, we really havenโ€™t got out of the traps at all and whether you can put that down to Hull, we gave the ball away cheaply, became disjointed very, very quickly and in the end it was a frustrating night for us.โ€

*Sky Sports*
Saturday, 31 March 2018

Aston Villa lost ground in their search for automatic promotion as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Hull in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday evening.

Albert Adomah missed two chances to open up an early lead at the KCOM, firstly poking Robert Snodgrassโ€™ teasing cross over from close range, before being dispossessed just yards from the goal line by Ola Aina.

Hull, battling for their lives at the bottom half of the table, defended well and were denied what looked like a clear penalty early in the second half when Jack Grealish raised his hands to Seb Larssonโ€™s free-kick.

Neither side could apply the killer blow in the end as Nigel Adkinsโ€™ men moved six points clear of the relegation zone, with Villa now nine points behind second-placed Cardiff, who have a game in hand.

As the first of Adomahโ€™s chances presented itself, there was little more Snodgrass could have done to deliver a better ball into the six-yard box from the right flank, but the Ghana international somehow missed the target from just a few yards out.

The Tigers looked good value in terms of possession in the first half as they patiently built in midfield, but it was the killer final ball that was lacking as Villa stopper Sam Johnstone went untested for the entire first 45 minutes.

John Terry headed Snodgrassโ€™ inviting corner over, but on the cusp of half-time, Adomah was set free on the left by Grealish; he opted to square for Lewis Grabban, but the pass had minimal pace and was subsequently cleared by Aina.

Seemingly re-invigorated by Adkinsโ€™ half-time team-talk, the hosts sped out of the blocks and were denied the chance to score the opener when Grealish failed to lower his arms as Larsson swung a free-kick in from the right-hand side; the Swedeโ€™s animated appeals were swiftly waved away.

For all of their first-half opportunities, Villaโ€™s attacking potency was absent after the break and though Steve Bruce opted to finish the game with three strikers on the pitch, it was Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor who was perhaps the least active player on the pitch.

Hull should have done better when both substitute Jon Toral and Max Clark fired strikes over the bar, but in the end, it was their defence that held firm to secure a valuable point in their survival quest.
