MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œIf you had asked me 11 games ago would we go and win the next 10, I would have thought you were a little bit crackers. โ€œThe turning point was half-time at Stoke when I got into the players and we have been excellent since then. โ€œI donโ€™t think until I look back on it I will realise what we have actually done because my focus is still on getting promoted. โ€œThis is a historic, great football club and to be the first manager to have achieved it is something special, but we want to continue it.โ€
