Draw and go out on away goals (1%)

Gabby Agbonlahor has told the official site that Villa aren't going to be complacent and know they have to finish the job this afternoon.

The game, also shown on Setana with a 5:15pm kick off is crucial to Villa after working so hard all last season to finish sixth, Gabby said:

'It's good that we got the two away goals but this tie isn't over yet. We've still got it all to do at Villa Park and we can't be complacent. We've just got to show what we can do and then hopefully we'll have a bit too much for them. We're confident but we won't take anything for granted.' Adding, the game isn't about how we play, just the result.

Martin O'Neill said of the game, 'We looked a threat for most of last season and that was the case over in Denmark, where we scored two away goals. We're definitely a threat. What we need to do now is cut down on the goals against. Some of the goals we concede, especially late on, are proof that we've got work to do. Sometimes late goals are unavoidable but at the end of it all it shows that in terms of being really ultra professional, we've got work to do.'

Marlon Harewood is out of the game with a knee injury.

We certainly weren't firing on all cylinders, but at least we're through, and thats all that really matters. They weren't a bad little side, and over the two legs caused us some problems, while also highlighting the fact that we have a ways to go team re-building wise before we can look with confidence at an extended UEFA Cup run.

Draw for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup on Friday of this week, is that right? One or two useful teams in there, we have to hope that as a squad we're up to strength by the time the tie comes around. Not much time Mart!
