Davies warns Newcastle that Villa won't lie down

Curtis Davies says there's no chance of Aston Villa laying down for Newcastle United this Sunday.

"We don't just want to draw with last year's [point] total, we want to beat it," said Davies, whose side currently have 59 points.

"That means we are going to have to beat Newcastle - not for the reason of wanting to send them down but for our own reasons. They are going to be desperate, like Middlesbrough were [during Saturday's 1-1 draw], throwing a lot of men forward and throwing caution to the wind."
