Agbonlahor: Fans will be with us all the way during survival battle


Gabby Agbonlahor is certain the claret and blue faithful will continue their immense backing throughout Villa's battle for top-flight survival.

Agbonlahor appreciates that the fans have recognised the team's efforts even when results haven't gone according to plan.

And the Erdington-born striker says the players will retain that tremendous support as long as they give 100 per cent.

"As long as they see we have given 100 per cent on the pitch they are going to stick with us," said Agbonlahor.

"It's when they see people not giving it that they will turn.

"That has not happened. We will keep fighting to the end.

"I think if you ask any Villa fan they are going to be worried with our situation at the moment.

"But they watched the game against Newcastle and they knew we gave 100 per cent.

"And that's all we can do. As long as we keep giving 100 per cent they will stay with us."

Villa have produced contrasting halves of football in their last two league games and Agbonlahor admits this needs to be addressed.

Paul Lambert's side surged to a 2-0 first-half lead against West Brom 12 days ago but let their advantage slip after the break.

On the flip side, the boys in claret and blue trailed by two goals in Tuesday's defeat against Newcastle before producing a bright second-half showing.

"It was the other way round against Newcastle," said Agbonlahor.

"I think we have to address it. I think we need to come out flying in the first half and then try to keep it going in the second half.

"If we do that, we have every chance of getting the results we need."
