The teams must meet again at Ewood Park on Wednesday to decide who makes it through to meet Wigan at Wembley in the last four of the FA Cup.

Both sides hit the woodwork but Jackett was left frustrated, saying: "Goalscoring has been a problem for us in 2013.

"The win was there for us. It is frustrating. In 2012, it wasn't a problem for us. But I think today showed that when we do get on top of sides, we need to score and we didn't.

"There was no lack of passion from the players but we didn't finish. It's something that we need to improve."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
