Olsson Delighted With Villa Goal

Olsson Delighted With Villa Goal

Jonas Olsson was delighted to get back on the scoresheet against Aston Villa, and he believes our threat from set pieces could be a huge weapon this season.

Speaking to wba.co.uk the centre half said.

'It was nice to score - finally!'

Olsson's last goal was 13 months ago in our 3-1 derby victory against Blues, so it's been a while coming.

'You always want to score a few goals every season, it's more than a year since I scored but it should've been two. My second chance was almost easier to put in I think.'

On our threat from set pieces, he added.

'Both goals came from set pieces, it's a good weapon to have, and we deserved to win. Brunty had some good delivery and hats off to him.'

As for the controversial dismissal of Villa's youngster Chris Herd - who Villa have appealed against today, Olsson said.

'Herd stepped back and then hit me on my thigh. If you ask him, he will think it is a bit harsh, but I think he will agree it was a foul. It was a needless thing for him to do. The linesman saw it and credit to him for taking a decision like that.'
