Martin O’Neill is in fighting talk asking for Villa to win their final five games of the season and to end on a real high. I had a night out that ended on a real high once, hmmm, happy days.

Villa face Derby County (away), Blues (home), Everton (away), Wigan (home) and West Ham (away).

The Villa boss told the official site that catching Everton is ‘probably a fanciful notion’ but if we do we’ll have to win all five games.

If we did, it would put us on 67 points for the season, O’Neill continued: ‘If we could post that number of points which would be phenomenal, we’d give ourselves a chance. We’ve got to finish ahead of the pack that’s around us to have any notion about qualifying for Europe – even if it’s through the Intertoto.’

He also says the performance against Bolton has restored their belief and confidence. Although in a warning to the players he says there can be no further slip ups following what he called ‘disappointing’ performances v Middlesbrough and Sunderland.
