Gary Rowett: Wants little less dazzle

Second-half goals from Jeff Hughes and Jamille Matt set up a granstand finish as the home side battled back from three-nil down at the break.

And Rowett was delighted to see his team safely across the line - thanks to goals from Rene Howe, Adam McGurk and Chris Hussey - but insists there would be no getting carried away with the result.

"We've started the season well. That's it. I'm not going to look at a league table," he said, with Albion having taken seven points from the opening nine on offer.

"We know there's a long way to go and we've got to keep performing as a team.

"We've got a really bright group of players and I'm pleased with them."

Yet the finale, at a rain-soaked Highbury, was not to Rowett's liking.

He said:"It wasn't a wonderful game of football, but never the less you've seen five goals.

"There were some real bits of entertainment.

"Maybe it's ended up being just a little too entertaining for my liking."

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.
