Villa 3-2 QPR media watch [18.03.13 PM]: Weimann/Guzan in focus Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan brushed off praise after he played a key part in the crucial 3-2 victory over QPR on Saturday.

Despite the plaudits that followed, Guzan insisted that he was simply doing his job within the team as Paul Lambert's side boosted their survival hopes.

Sky Sports: Aston Villa forward Andreas Weimann admits he was impressed by the club's supporters during the win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. Villa boosted their survival hopes with a 3-2 victory against their fellow strugglers, with Weimann scoring in between goals from Gabriel Agbonlahor and Christian Benteke. And the 21-year-old insists the Villa Park faithful played a vital role in driving the team on during a crucial fixture in their attempts at avoiding the drop.

Clubcall: Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was delighted with the performance of Andreas Weimann in the 3-2 win over QPR on Saturday.

Sky Sports: Brad Guzan is confident the belief and fighting spirit within the Aston Villa squad will see them safe this season.

ESPN: Brad Guzan has modestly brushed aside the latest round of plaudits aimed at him in his extraordinary breakthrough season at Aston Villa. The goalkeeper was the undisputed hero of an exciting victory over bottom club QPR on Sunday which raised hopes of a successful end to a difficult campaign at Villa Park.

ESPN: Paul Lambert has heaped praise on Andreas Weimann after the striker scored one goal and created another to enable Aston Villa to snatch an unlikely victory against basement rivals Queens Park Rangers. Villa, fortunate not to be out of the game by half-time, were ultimately celebrating a second crucial victory in the space of eight days as their in-form forwards again delivered. And Weimann, the Austrian forward who has a knack of coming up with crucial contributions, was particularly impressive according to his boss.
