More away day misery

Villa boss Graham Taylor againn expressed his concern despite Dion Dublin's first half strike against City - only Villa's third away goal on their travels this season.

"That is the first time a forward has scored for us in an away game this season," said Taylor.

"We have five or six strikers at the club and they have all had a run in the side at various times. We are creating chances, we just aren't taking them."

Taylor also admitted Algerian midfieder Ali Benarbia's coming off the City bench changed the game dramatically.

"People will probably question Kevin Keegan about why Benarbia doesn't start, but if he keeps doing that when he comes on, substitute might be his best position," added Taylor.

"He was the major reason why we lost this game."
