Martin O'Neill says he was happy with the 'kids' performance against Peterborough.
The team was:
Friedel, Cuellar, Knight, Davies, Shorey; Bannan, Sidwell, Reo-Coker (skipper), Albrighton, Harewood,Weimann, Subs: Parish, Lowry, Lichaj, Roome, Hofbauer, Herd, Clark, Osbourne, McGurk, Collins.
On the official site the Villa boss said some of them did 'exceptionally well' although he wasn't surprised as he has been watching them over the last few seasons and is 'delighted' to have so many young talented players fighting to get into the first team.
'It was really refreshing to see Barry, Marc and Andreas combine for that first goal. It was a short corner from Barry to Marc who put it in with a cross and then Andreas finished it off. And that was from three boys who have exactly no Premier League experience between them at all. It was very encouraging.'
MON admits there were some 'scary' moments early on but thinks Villa did better in the second half.
'I thought we did better in the second half. Curtis's goal was fantastic. After that run, it would have taken him a long time to get back if he hadn't finished it off. We managed to get all the players on the field too - some got more time than others - and we're now looking forward to Colchester on Tuesday.'
