MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œAs a Villa supporter, Iโ€™ve seen teams that have come unstuck in situations like that, whether itโ€™s a youthful team or a lower-league team. โ€œThe words I said to them were attitude, application and teamwork and I thought we got that in abundance tonight and they have done it right. โ€œThis football club has got a very proud history in all cup competitions - weโ€™ve won this five times, weโ€™ve won the FA Cup seven times. โ€œYouโ€™ve seen the numbers that have travelled down from Birmingham and they deserve our utmost respect - and weโ€™ve given it that tonight.โ€
