Tommy Elphick: A run has to be around the corner for us

Tommy Elphick says a winning run has to be around the corner for Aston Villa if the club are to keep pace in the battle to end the season in the top six.

The claret and blues drew 2-2 for the fourth time since the start of December on Saturday, coming from two down to take a point in the second half.

But despite the brave effort, Elphick insists that only wins can now be considered good enough as we bid to make up ground on our challengers.

He told Club TV after the Hull draw: "Ultimately, the feeling in the dressing room is one of disappointment.

"Hull are now a rival and we could have overtaken them and cup the gap to the top six.

"We can take heart in the fact we came back. The fans saw a much better team out there in the second half – one that could've gone on to win the game. The work rate, effort and endeavour was there.

"But that victory has got to come. A run has to be around the corner for us now.

"For where we want to get to and because of the players we have – it just has to.

"We have to be mindful of what we've done wrong and take glimpses of the second half against QPR and Hull forward, and turn it into a complete performance."
