Villa Smash More Teams To Fly Up The Table

Aston Villa manager Sir Alex Ferguson today said his team had become men with a unbeaten streak now consisting twelve matches. 'The lads have been brilliant this month and last month but the difference this month is that we have been able to hold on to and build on leads'. The remarkable upturn in the Villans form is down to moving Will Hughes to attacking midfield and Giovanni Dos Santos out to the wing.

Eugene Konplyanka and Andriy Yarmelenko are important cogs in this attacking line up too. Elliott Bennett, Mattheus and Andre Ayew have also impressed. Bennett who wasn't sure when Manager Ferguson moved him to a more unfamiliar role of Centre Midfield but has excelled and Ferguson is very complimentary of the Telford born player. 'Elliott was bought on the cheap' said Sir Alex, 'but he has bought something totally different and I think deserves a place in the England squad.'

Aston Villa 2-0 Tottenham
Mattheus (12)

Venue: Villa Park

Aston Villa taught Tottenham a footballing lesson today. Sir Alex decided to leave Agbonlahor and Dos Santos on the bench but it didn't matter as Mattheus stroked a lovely crisp left footer into the bottom right hand corner and then Eugene Konoplyanka hit a volley into the top right hand corner after lovely cross from Will Hughes. Villa will play Man City in the Semi Finals

Konoplyanka (90+2)
Venue: The Madjeski
Attendance: 19,000
Aston Villa showed they can punish a team as at 1-1 Reading went for broke on the 70th minute and the Villans punished them big style by putting 3 past them. the two ukrainians Andriy Yarmelenko(1) and Eugene Konoplyanka(2) put Reading to the Sword but it was Will Hughes and Elliott Bennett that ran the show. This was infront of Roy Hodgson too and Bennett is really impressing now.

Sunday 30th March
Live On BT Sport
Blackburn Rovers 0-1 Aston Villa
Clyne (72)
Venue: Ewood Park
Attendance: 28,583
Nathanial Clyne does not score many goals and this one was a fluke. It was a cross that caught the wind and drifted over the keeper to make sure that Villa ended the month in the top half of the table. He did not put a foot wrong all game as Will Hughes was rested.

Premier League Table

Aston Villa Manager Sir Alex Ferguson said he would be in the top half by the end of this month and they are. They are playing very well too.


Player Of The Month Award

Ron Vlaar is included in the top 3 of the Player of the month award. He has had an amazing month this month along with the Villa team themselves.

Young Player Of The Month Award

Will Hughes picks up the young player of the month for an everage rating of 9.2! Sir Alex has moved him from central midfield to attacking midfield and it has worked wonders. Will was delighted to pick it up and can't wait for the run in to the season.

Manager Of The Month

Sir Alex Ferguson was named Manager Of The Month for March after four wins and one draw. He was miles ahead of anyone else and he paid tribute to his team and backroom team. 'It has been a transition period as I got rid of the deadwood and picked my backroom staff carefully' Said Fergie. 'I think most teams now are scared of this young, vibrant and up for it Villa Team.'

How Will Villa fare in April stay tuned to find out
