MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa assistant manager Colin Calderwood*

โ€Weโ€™re clear where we are, weโ€™re not going to have the disappointment of missing out. Whichever way you dress it up, you have to deal with the situation in front of you and there can be no negatives in our thoughts. I think Middlesbrough are on better form than us, but the pleasing thing today was the rhythm of our game and how we looked powerful in the second half.

โ€œYou have to add a note of caution in there, Derby played on Tuesday and had to chase the game. There must be something in that. As pleased as we are, we know it has to be better.โ€

*Sky Sports*
Saturday, 28 April 2018

Aston Villaโ€™s automatic promotion hopes were finally ended after play-off chasing Derby clung on for a fortunate point.

Lewis Grabban rescued a late 1-1 draw for the hosts after the Rams rode their luck following Cameron Jeromeโ€™s opener.

Villa now must rely on the Sky Bet Championship play-offs to return to the Premier League after a two-year absence - where they could face Derby again.

Villa dominated a possible play-off dress rehearsal but Grabban and Jonathan Kodjia hit the crossbar for the hosts, while Conor Hourihane wasted a glorious chance.

Yet Villa - who will finish fourth - were forced to come from behind after Jeromeโ€™s 14th-minute opener. Former Villa striker Andreas Weimann robbed a dawdling Neil Taylor on the right and crossed for Jerome to sweep in his third goal of the week.

It was sloppy from Villa but they should have at least levelled before the break. Grabban headed a golden chance over after 25 minutes when Albert Adomah left Richard Keogh trailing before Scott Carson saved Jack Grealishโ€™s low effort.

The hosts remained on top, with Derby reliant on Tom Lawrence conjuring an opening, yet they failed to find a breakthrough before half-time.

Villa continued to press after the break but a leveller proved elusive. Grealish fired over and Carson claimed Hourihaneโ€™s free-kick before the Republic of Ireland international missed Villaโ€™s best chance with 20 minutes left.

The midfielder was in the right place when the ball looped into his path six yards out but he somehow volleyed wide with the goal at his mercy.

Weimann almost made his former side pay when he went through but saw James Chester block his shot, while Villa immediately went up the other end and Kodjiaโ€™s 74th-minute header came back off the bar.

But Steve Bruceโ€™s side finally levelled with eight minutes left when Grabban pounced after Carson had denied Hourihane.
