Gareth Barry has called on the players to end the season in style, starting with a victory over Everton on Sunday.
Speaking on the official site Barry admitted that our form has been less than impressive this season, and has said that the players share the frustrations of the fans when it comes to that fact, but he believes a victory over Everton would kickstart a proper finish to league and a final battle to secure a Top 4 place.
'The fans are just as frustrated as us with our home form. We haven't won as many games as we'd like at Villa Park but a victory over a top team like Everton would lift everyone's spirits - the manager, the players and the fans.
'That could then spark a good run at home - and hopefully three more wins at Villa Park. That's how important Sunday's game is.
'There's no getting away from it - it is massive in the scheme of things. The impact of the result is huge when you look at where both clubs sit in the table.
'A good result - and three points - would kick-start our season. Not only would it widen the gap with Everton but it will help us as we look to chase down Arsenal for that fourth spot.
'If either team can put a run together of say six wins in seven, Champions League football is still possible.'
A lot of sense in his comments, Arsenal have some very tough games coming up so we definitely aren't out of the fight yet, we just need to start winning our games again.
