On the back of a goalless weekend, Chris and Steve look back on a hard fought Aston Villa point but lament the inability to turn it into three. Nevertheless, our young team dealt effectively with a physical and organised Stoke City team in a run of good form. And Villa aren't on a terrible run themselves, having gone four games unbeaten for the first time in living memory*.
This week sees Villa face two difficult away games, both previewed in this week's show. On Tuesday it's a CapitalOne Cup quarter-final at Norwich City, and on Saturday Villa head to Merseyside to face a traditionally fruitless game at Liverpool.
