MATCH QUOTES

Post Match *Sunday, 21 March 2021* *Villa manager Dean Smith* โ€‹"If you make mistakes like we did for their goals and don't create or show much quality in the final third, you are going to lose games. I thought we started well and got into some really good areas, but lacked quality when we got there. "They got numbers behind the ball but we got into the box a number of times and either hit the first man or didn't show the quality needed. That's what's probably lacking with us at the moment. "I still feel we should have a free-kick before their second goal on Matt Targett, if he learns to go down... it's a penalty, Harry's miscontrolled it and he catches him. If Matt Targett goes down on the touchline maybe it doesn't even get there. "When we had the shut down we kind of lost the momentum, we've been up and down since then. 'Jack Grealish will be back first game after the international break." "Mistakes [cost us]. I thought we started well and were the better team in the first 30 minutes. We made a mistake and they scored. We got into good areas in the first half. We made a stupid mistake for the penalty. "Defensively we were solid all game. "I thought Matt Targett was fouled, he needs to learn to go down maybe. They went on to score the second. "We can't [just] wait for Jack [Grealish] to come back. The players there, it's their opportunity. Not too many have taken it. "We've had a good season so far but we're in a bit of a blip. We won't get too downhearted. We'll reflect and work hard. We have a top player coming back for the next game." ---
