Black defiant despite another Villa defeat

Home loss puts them on the edge

Aston Villa caretaker manager Eric Black remained defiant despite his side being all but relegated following their 2-1 home defeat against Bournemouth.

Only a bizarre series of results will enable Villa to overtake 17th-placed Norwich who have a vastly superior goal difference which means that the midlands club are set to be relegated from the premier league for the first time.

However, Black, who took over from Remi Garde last month, remained defiant despite another poor performance which saw Bournemouth deservedly take all three points.

"Not going down today is a small consolation. I was happy with the energy and desire to do what we asked them to do," Black said afterwards.

"We've conceded poorish goals, but we have to remain professional until the end. Come Monday morning we have to dust ourselves down and go again.

"We didn't create as many chances as we would have liked. Ultimately if you concede poor goals it will be hard to score.

"I'm sure it's not easy to play in that atmosphere, but there have only been two or three victories here this season so I won't be criticising the supporters. They turned out again today, which I find remarkable. This is certainly not down to the supporters."
