Martin O'Neill was happy with the way Villa reacted to a poor start following our 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.
The Villa boss said: 'After a shaky start we were in control throughout.'
Adding on the official site:
'We played really well after the initial skirmishes. I thought that we were pretty slow to start and they had good possession in and around our box in the opening ten minutes. After we came through that spell without conceding a goal, I thought we were great and played really, really well.'
'We got the goal, which was obviously a big boost to us. Then we conceded a soft penalty just before half-time, but that went our way as it was missed. Then in the second-half we were great and on the counter attack we did really well.'
O'Neill on Match of the Day admitted it was a penalty after Thomas Sorensen brought down former Villa boy Darius Vassell.
He added: 'I was delighted for Ashley Young to be involved with the first goal. I saw last week that he was getting back to the form that encouraged us to go out and buy him in January. It was a great cross for the goal and John Carew put it away well. I was similarly pleased for Shaun Maloney. It was a good free-kick and to get your first goal for a new club is always a big moment. It will give him plenty of confidence.'
'In all, I was delighted with everyone and our brilliant travelling support can return home with smiles on their faces yet again.'
Now lets finish the season unbeaten and pick up two more wins, starting with a treat for the home fans next week who haven't had too much to cheer about but who have cheered none-the-less this season!
