The Aston Villa Supporters Trust have big concerns over this season's struggles.

AVST feels that almost two years after Alex McLeish was sacked the claret and blues' expectations and potential remain unfulfilled.

They make particular reference to the club's record 10 league defeats at Villa Park this season and their current points tally.

In part, an AVST statement read: "The AVST feels as it stands, two seasons later, the club is in exactly the same position in terms of the club's expectations and potential being unfulfilled.

"However, in the interests of stability it is only rational considering the stage of the season to give the current Villa management the full season before considering the overall picture in the context of the Villa board's statement of two years ago. We wish everyone involved at the club the very best in securing Aston Villa's Premier League status in the meantime."
