Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor says no-one is hiding behind the youth of their squad.

Agbonlahor was Villa's third oldest starter at Bradford City, behind Shay Given and Charles N’Zogbia.

But the 26-year-old striker, is not panicking about his team's overall lack of experience.

Agbonlahor said: “People are saying they are young, but they are not 16 or 17.

“They are young, but they have all played quite a few games and are confident. They are all experienced pros and we will be okay.

“We are disappointed with the result, and the way we played as a team, at Bradford. But everyone is in it together and team spirit is good, we will be fine and try to put it right.”
