MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith*

โ€œThey played very well, but theyโ€™ve done that for the last three or four years here; theyโ€™ve got good players who can pass and move. The disappointing part of tonight and probably the most frustrating is that the big chances fell to us tonight and weโ€™ve missed them.โ€

*Sky Sports*
Wednesday, 13 February 2019

Neal Maupay struck a clinical stoppage-time winner as Brentford beat Aston Villa 1-0 on Dean Smithโ€™s return to his former club.

The Bees had been the better team for the entirety of the first half and missed numerous chances to open the scoring, Sergi Canos notably forcing Villa goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic to tip a dipping volley over the bar early on.

Smithโ€™s side seemed to come to their senses after the break, but Daniel Bentley was rarely tested, though he did well to stay alert to block Conor Hourihaneโ€™s shot with 23 minutes to play.

Brentford looked as though they would be left to rue their failure to convert their attacking display into a win, but Maupay hit the top corner in the second minute of injury time, to leave Villa without league win at Griffin Park since 1947.

On the night Smith returned to Griffin Park for the first time since his departure in October, it was his side still harbouring realistic hopes of a play-off chase, yet it was his former players who dominated proceedings from the first whistle.

Though Thomas Frank denied it prior to kick-off, the Bees stuck with the 3-4-3 formation that has served them so well recently, and it was makeshift right wing-back Canos who was the first to go close when he forced a smart save out of Kalinic from 20 yards.

The severe pressure from the hosts showed no signs of letting up as the half wore on; Moses Odubajo struck the side netting, while Maupay half-heartedly appealed for a penalty and Said Benrahma shot wide on the swivel.

Albert Adomah could have dealt the Bees a sucker-punch moments before the break when he managed to get goal-side of Odubajo, but goalkeeper Bentley rushed out to narrow the angle and the winger dragged the shot across the face of goal.

Smith sent his troops out to stop the hosts from playing their passing game after the break and, for the first 15 minutes or so, it worked. Canos found fewer pockets to race into, while Hourihane was denied the chance to strike on the counter when Bentley raced off his line to close down the shot with his arms outstretched.

Frankโ€™s team continued to tinker around the Villa 18-yard box to no avail, but in stoppage time, they finally made their long spells of dominance worthwhile. Tommy Elphick prematurely went to ground, allowing star man Maupay to cut inside Tyrone Mings and bury the winner.
