MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€œLetโ€™s not kid ourselves. Weโ€™ve got a long way to go and a lot of work to do, but itโ€™s nice to come away from home and show a bit of character to get the result. โ€œWe were too slow in our build-up play in the first half. In the second half we showed a bit more cutting edge. โ€œAnd Iโ€™m so pleased for Alan Hutton in particular. Itโ€™s been a privilege to work with him for the last two years. He works really hard and heโ€™s a great example to any young player.โ€
