MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith*

โ€œIt was a very professional performance. They had a fortunate goal that looked like a cross but we responded really.

โ€œI brought John McGinn back in which was a tough decision because the midfield three have been doing really well. He was brilliant and deserved his two goals.

โ€œHe epitomises what weโ€™re about as heโ€™s a very good player but works so hard - the lads in the dressing room love him.

โ€œ[On being two points off the play-offs] I donโ€™t want another false dawn so all we will be doing is concentrating on the next game which is Middlesbrough at home.โ€

*BBC Sport*
Wednesday, 13 March 2019

*A first-half double from John McGinn boosted Aston Villaโ€™s play-off hopes after an impressive away win which dented Nottingham Forestโ€™s chances of reaching the top six.*

The hosts initially took the lead in a frantic opening 15 minutes, in which three goals were scored, as McGinnโ€™s two goals put Dean Smithโ€™s side ahead at the break.

Forest fought hard to get themselves back into the game in the second half, with a Yohan Benalouane goal ruled out for offside, before Kortney Hauseโ€™s first strike for Villa put the game out of reach.

The result sees Villa leapfrog Martin Oโ€™Neilโ€™s side into eighth place in the Championship, two points behind sixth-placed Derby.

McGinnโ€™s excellently-taken goals came just eight minutes apart - the first, a low driven shot from the left, was followed by a superb long-range effort from 25 yards that rebounded off the post, beyond Costel Pantilimon in the Forest net.

Jack Colback had given Forest an early lead after his cross-cum-shot looped over Jed Steer in the third minute of the game.

The first meeting this season at Villa park ended in a remarkable 5-5 draw, and after three goals were scored so early it appeared fans at the City Ground could be treated to another high-scoring thriller.

But in an entertaining and competitive game, the only other goal came when Hause deflected a whipped free-kick from Conor Hourihane into the net just after the hour mark to keep the visitors in the hunt for the play-offs.

*Aston Villa boss Dean Smith told BBC WM:*

โ€œIt was a very professional performance. They had a fortunate goal that looked like a cross but we responded really.
