Heskey targets Champions League place for Aston Villa

Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey believes they are back in the race for a Champions League place, following their win over Fulham at the weekend.

Gabriel Agbonlahor managed to end Villa’s struggles in front of goal by grabbing a brace against Fulham.

“You see teams – top-four teams – go there and get outplayed but we really got at them and I think we deserved the points,” Heskey said in The Mirror

“Now we’ve got to try and keep our foot on the pedal.

“We always come bouncing back. We will never give up.

“Our confidence was high anyway because of the performances we had been putting in, but you’ve got to get the goals to go with that and against Fulham we did.

“They are a good side and they pass it around well.

“But we are all buzzing. We have some really great lads and we get on really well together. It’s a nice atmosphere.”
