Statement from the chairman and chief executive
A win was in sight last night against Bolton after a strong start and the tenacity the team displayed, although ultimately we weren't able to hold on for the points.
We very openly acknowledge the frustrations of Villa fans and share in them completely.
What matters to us and the Board at this moment is how we, as a Club, handle adversity and the pressure it brings.
Our horizon is the next three games and we continue to be in control of our own destiny.
Young players side-by-side with more senior players are fighting hard for the Club.
They are now preparing for West Brom followed by Spurs and Norwich.
We will continue to support and rely on our manager and the squad and therefore give them our full support.
We are totally conscious, as is everyone at the Club, that this is a very trying time for those who love Aston Villa.
We know that the team will continue to fight through every minute of the remaining games and we hope Villa fans will continue to show their great support.
