Steve Bruce must have had harsh words for his players at half time but it was Warnock’s players who dominated the game after the restart and in the 60th minute Junior Hoilett put his name on the scoresheet.

Eleven minutes later it was that man Mendez-Laing, with great footwork, who blasted the ball into the net and it was all over for Villa.
