Villa - Job Done v Blackburn Rovers
Martin O'Neill declared after the 2-0 canter against a disappointing Blackburn Rovers: 'We got the job done.'
A penalty from Gareth Barry and a goal Juan Pablo Angel in front of a disappointing 30 000 crowd saw Villa win with ease against Mark Hughes hit and hope team.
O'Neill reflected: 'We got the job done today and that's all that mattered. It was nice to get back to winning ways, because we hadn't won in the league for a little while. It wasn't a classic and we'll certainly play better, but I don't think anyone can say we didn't deserve the three points. I've not seen the penalty decision again, but I was delighted for Gareth to put it away.'
'Getting the penalty was one thing, but after recent events, there was no guarantee we'd score it. The second goal came at a good time and just settled things down for us. Juan Pablo did well.'
Adding, on the official site: 'I thought Chris again showed what he can bring to the team. He was a little sore at the end, but he worked very hard for the cause. Martin Laursen was given the sponsors' Man of the Match award and he did very well. He stepped in at the last minute and once again he didn't let us down.'
