Almost all in the claret and blue were not good, but we thought you might enjoy some Aston Villa player grades anyway.
Bleh. No other way to put it. Aston Villa laid an egg at home to a pretty terrible Queens Park Rangers team. Full credit to Ian Holloway’s men, though. They stifled every Villa possession, keeping a clean sheet through a flurry of lethal counters.
Steve Bruce’s unchanged XI looked rather mundane, about 72 hours after a physically and emotionally draining hammering of Wolverhampton Wanderers. In retrospect, it would have been wise to swap a player or two for fresher legs. But this is crunch time so the preferred XI went.
