McAllister impressed by Dunne reaction

McAllister insists Dunne has a key role to play in Villa's future after the Republic of Ireland international was recalled for Sunday's 3-3 draw at Chelsea.

McAllister said: "We are all desperate for the club to move forward. That is very clear. There has been a lot of change.

"This group of players have had three managers this season. They started with Martin O'Neill in pre-season, then Kevin MacDonald and then Gerard Houllier came.

"There has been a lot of change, loads of different ideas, training schedules, training times etc. The players have been asked to change.

"But, as far as the incident with Dunny and myself, I don't have a problem with `Dunny'."
