Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar insists morale remains rock solid inside the club.

After consecutive defeats by Everton and West Ham , Villa were held to a 0-0 draw by struggling Cardiff, and now lie four points off the relegation zone.

"The results before that [loss to West Ham] were good so it didn't really dent confidence," Vlaar told BBC WM.

"But it does do something; you have to react and we've done that well."
