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.

Aston Villa hosted Sheffield Wednesday at Villa Park for a 3pm kick off on Saturday November 4, with the visitors taking a two one nil victory following goals by Adam Reach and Jordan Rhodes. Villa's late consolation came through Chris Samba.


Aston Villa:

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


Taylor, Steer, Jedinak, Bjarnason.

Sheff Wed:

Westwood, Hunt, Lees, Loovens, Fox, Wallace (Palmer 63), Butterfield, Bannan, Reach, Rhodes (Fletcher 73), Hooper (Jones 83).


van Aken, Lucas Joao, Wildsmith, Abdi.

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.'
