Cressie: “We paid the price”


CressieHammer of the Year Aaron Cresswell has spoken of his huge disappointment at the Villa Park defeat.

Speaking to the official site he said: “We just need to take one of the chances we’re creating, but unfortunately we couldn’t do that  and we paid the price.

“I think we had a couple of chances. Enner had his header ruled out for offside, but I think if we score the first goal it’s a different game.

“We were disappointed with the way we conceded. Grealish pulled it back from the line and unfortunately for us it’s gone through James Collins’ legs and the lad’s tapped it in.

“They’re fighting for their lives down at the bottom and that’s never nice for anyone, including the players.

“They were 1-0 up and they were always going to sit back in the last 15, 20 minutes. We just needed that goal which we couldn’t get.”

    Just think Aarron if they had taken just a couple of there chances and were not desperate for the point and kept attacking it could have been another 4 or 5 nil,
    Best keep quite while the fans still respect you,
    I know BFS thinks we stupid but we are not so just play football and hope you get a great new manager that will bring you on and you become an England regular
