With Aston Villa being somewhat busy on deadline day, all in, given the position we are in, we have to class the January transfer window as being a small success with some experience added, but fans would’ve been far happier had we made it count earlier today and picked up another three points against fellow strugglers Bournemouth.
You can’t help feel that this may be a result we look back on, but there are plenty of points left to battle for in 2019/20 and following his recent arrival, Mbwana Samatta opening his account for us late on as he grabbed the consolation will certainly do his confidence the world of good.
A poorer first half and a mad six minutes cost us really as they took a two goal advantage into the half time break, but having gone down to ten men many will feel we should’ve drawn level, but sometimes that easier to say than do, and ultimately they held out.
We remain outside of the dropzone but there will be few who are happy with that.
