Andy Marshall is currently third choice goalkeeper at Villa.
He generally makes the bench when Shay Given or Brad Guzan are injured - although he is a positive influence in the dressing room.
WHAT HE SAID
The lads are enjoying working with Ian Culverhouse, who I used to play with at Norwich. They understand the intensity he works at and it's no different to when he played, he played with exactly the same intensity.
We've got a good honest bunch of lads here, from the young lads, right through to the experienced players.
Andy Marshall may not have played much first team football at Villa but his influence cannot be underestimated.
He's a voice of reason at the training ground for young starlets asking advice as well as a likeable and charismatic character to improve morale.
Drafted in originally to provide cover for USA compatriots Brad Friedel and Brad Guzan, Marshall found first team appearances limited and was often called on by the reserves the steady the defence.
In fact, in his first season at B6, Marshall was a member of Villa's reserve team that won the Premier Reserve League South.
Although senior outings were rare, Marshall was part of a spell on the bench under Gerard Houllier's reign, when Guzan was loaned out in January 2011.
Marshall made his unofficial first team Villa debut during the second half in a 2011-12 pre-season friendly that finished 3-1 to the claret and blues at near-neighbours Walsall.
Marshall began his professional career with Norwich City.
He made his first team debut against Nottingham Forest in December 1994.
Marshall played the majority of the remaining 1994-95 season in goal, gaining valuable experience along the way.
To further his experience, Marshall was sent out on loan to Bournemouth and Gillingham to enhance his chances of appearing in the first team set-up.
First team stopper Bryan Gunn was dropped at the end of the 1996-97 season and Marshall took this opportunity to stake his claim as keeper for the Canaries.
Marshall quickly became a cult hero at Carrow Road, making 219 appearances for the club since stepping up to the No.1 spot.
During the 2000-01 season, he was voted Player of the Season by the fans - however, this season was to be his last at Norwich, as he expressed his desire to play top-flight football.
Marshall then controversially moved to fierce rivals Ipswich Town.
After a brief spell at Wolves, Marshall headed out on loan to Millwall, where he would later make his move permanent.
Marshall moved to Coventry City in 2006.
He made an instant impact with the fans, winning numerous awards during his first season at the club, including the Player of the Season gong and the London Supporters Player of the Year prize.
Marshall was released by Coventry in 2009, paving the way for his switch to Villa.
Andy Marshall played in the 2004 FA Cup final at the Millennium Stadium while on loan at Millwall. Unfortunately Manchester United triumphed 3-0.
