Stephen Warnock was one of the impressive players for Aston Villa in the recent 1-1 draw with Tottenham, which most secured the Premier league place for Aston Villa next season.
The club has been relegation trouble for a few months now, but they finally seem to have done enough with this point from the match against Tottenham.
Aston Villa were coming into the match only three points ahead of the relegation zone with two matches remaining in the season. However, it looks like the relegation places will now be decided between QPR, Wigan, and Bolton after this point for Aston Villa.
Aston Villa were given a great boost in the match after Danny Rose was sent off in the match following his challenge on Alan Hutton. Stephen Warnock was one of the impressive players at the back for Aston Villa, as they fought valiantly for a point. This has been a very tough season for Aston Villa considering the number of injuries they have had to contend with and also the limited funds manager Alex McLeish has been given by owner Randy Lerner. This is the year in which Aston Villa have been extremely prudent in spending money due to the vast resources spent on players during the time of Martin O’Neill.
Aston Villa now have 38 points on the board with one game remaining. “Relief is probably the emotion I have right now. Saying that, we have another game and we have to prepare properly and try to win. We conceded a soft penalty and then lost a wee bit of composure and they looked threatening, but we held our nerve until the end of the game. I thought the determination and attitude of the players was fantastic,” said the Scot after the match, which has almost guaranteed safety.
