Agbonlahor: Plenty more twists and turns to come this season


Gabby Agbonlahor is adamant Villa will not lie down in the battle for survival and insists there are "a lot more turns and twists" to come this season.

Agbonlahor played a big part in the second-half revival in the defeat to Newcastle but was unable to help the claret and blues find an equaliser.

But the Villa striker says the squad will take great heart from their display in the second period against the Magpies.

"There are a lot of teams around us and there are going to be a lot of turns and twists," said Agbonlahor.

"But if you look at the second half performance we have got every chance.

"Everyone is just looking at the next game.

"We had chances at the end and we were unlucky not to get something out of the game.

"On another day Nathan Baker's header drops to someone in the box and it goes it.

"But we have to forget about this result and look ahead to the next game."

Agbonlahor felt Villa deserved something from the Newcastle game after piling on the pressure in the latter stages.

He says the players proved they have the necessary belief and fight to handle a survival battle.

"I think you could tell by the second-half performance there was a lot more fight," the forward added.

"We believed in the second half. In the first half we were slow out of the traps but we can try and take some heart out of the second-half performance.

"We had a lot of pressure in the second half and we were unfortunate not to get the equaliser.

"But when you've got a two-goal deficit it is always going to be hard and in the end it was too much for us."
