Instant Reactions - Villa v Sheff Wednesday (4/11/17)

Following yesterday's clash between Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday, here are the instant reactions from both managers.

Teams:

Johnstone, Elmohamady, Chester, Terry (Samba 21), Hutton, Snodgrass (O'Hare 40), Whelan (Grealish 77), Hourihane, Adomah, Davis, Hogan.

Speaking to the BBC's cameras a short time after match day referee Geoff Eltringham blew the final whistle, Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce explained.

'We got rocked by a stunning goal. A wonderful strike from the boy. I don't think I've ever been a goal down after 20 seconds before. It rocked everybody. We huffed and puffed without ever having that real cutting edge. But it was a big blow losing both John Terry and Robert Snodgrass. Chris Samba came on and did well and he scored when we went gung ho and went for it towards the end, but really it was an awful afternoon for us.'

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal in his comparitive interview explained.

'Villa found it difficult to create chances but that was because my players were so fantastic, helped by that early goal. I know the quality of Adam Reach. He's young, English and a real talent. And he can get even better. We know we can challenge for the play-offs. The quality of our play should ensure we are challenging at the end of the season.'
