Aston Villa goal hero Clark: We should have beaten Chelsea

Aston Villa goal scorer Ciaran Clark says they leave Chelsea disappointed not to have won.

It was Clark who netted a late equaliser for the scores to finish at 3-3.

He told talkSPORT: "We were slightly disappointed that we didn't come away with the three points but after being 3-2 down, to get a draw out of the game in the last couple of minutes is a great result.

"The gaffer [Gerard Houllier] told us to get our heads down and work hard, we all need to stick together. We've been working hard in training over the last couple of days, since the last result [losing 4-0 to Manchester City] and I think that showed today in the way we helped each other and worked hard for each other."

When asked about his goal he went on to say: "You know when Marc [Albrighton] gets the ball out-wide that he's got superb delivery. I knew that if I got myself in the box then I've got a chance of getting on the end of it [the cross]. I turned around to make sure I wasn't offside and then wheeled away to the crowd. I was delighted."
