Aston Villa reserves coach Kevin MacDonald believes there are more youngster coming off the conveyor belt that will challenge for the first team next season.

He said: "Nathan Delfouneso, Harry Forrester and Barry Bannan and people like that have all done very well with the under-18s. Whilst the middle group, if you like, of Chris Herd, Jonathan Hogg and Shane Lowry have also done very, very well indeed."
