Garde targeting great escape


?Aston Villa manager Remi Garde is hoping to draw inspiration from Leicester as he looks to keep his team in the Premier League.

Goals from Joleon Lescott and Gabby Agbonlahor helped Villa to a 2-0 win over Norwich on Saturday, just third Premier League win of the season, but they remain rooted to the bottom of the table, eight points from safety.

With 13 remaining, Villa face an uphill battle to retain their Premier League status but Garde believes they are capable of producing a miracle.

"Why not? When you see Leicester now, it's crazy and unbelievable, nobody could have seen that 12 months ago," Garde said when asked if his team were capable of remaining in the top division.

"We should be inspired by that. I have the feeling it's very tough but the players I select every week believe it's still possible.

"The road is still very long and difficult, until the end we will have a lot of suffering. Nobody will help us now, it will be within the dressing room.

"I believe in hard work, discipline, rigour. It's not only in a week or two weeks you can pick up the fruits of that. If we keep this attitude maybe everyone will eat fruits at the end of the season."
