Watch Houllier, Sidwell, Downing and Clark react to win on AVTV

Villa put in a battling performance to see off Burnley in the fourth round of the Carling Cup - and AVTV were on hand to get the best post-match reaction.

Several star names faced the AVTV cameras after the game to give their verdict.

Manager Gerard Houllier expressed his relief at Villa's determined display against the Clarets and the immense display of Emile Heskey on his arrival into the action.

Winger Stewart Downing made it a happy hat-trick against Burnley.

He made his debut against the Clarets, scored two goals in the corresponding fixture at Villa Park and then thumped home the winner in this one. He was thrilled to progress.

Tony Morley, European Cup legend and AVTV co-commentator, hailed Villa's extra quality as a deciding factor and singled out Brad Friedel's outstanding display.

Steve Sidwell discussed his partnership with Nigel Reo-Coker and the character of the team after the tough clash.

Ciaran Clark also spoke to AVTV after his stunning defensive display and discussed the fluctuating nature of the tie - and the contributions of the young lions in helping Villa through.

Subscribers can watch all interviews in full now on AVTV's interviews channel and - if that isn't enough - we'll have a post-match show for you to enjoy too tomorrow [Thursday].
