Aston Villa forward Traore: Staying up still our objective

Aston Villa forward Bertrand Traore insists staying up remains the objective for his side.

The Villains moved in ninth on the table with Sunday's 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, with Traore getting on the scoresheet.

And the Burkina Faso striker says Villa must secure their safety before doing 'great things' for their fans.

"We drew against Burnley, it was not good enough but we took positive things and created a lot of chances. Tonight we were clinical at the right end of the field.

"I was waiting for the first goal and happy to get that. The early assist gave me confidence and showed me how I have to go through the game.

"We need to stay focused on our own goal and object of staying up, then we want to do great things for the club and the fans."
