Marshall reveals Sherwood influence on Villa FA Cup win

Aston Villa coach Scott Marshall says Tim Sherwood had a big hand in their FA Cup win over Leicester City.

Sherwood was at Villa Park for the 2-1 win.

Leandro Bacuna and Scott Sinclair then netted in the second half to send Villa into the last eight for the first time in five years.

"He came in and made a couple of points to the lads, a couple of bits and pieces for everyone. I thought the boys delivered that in the second half and were very good," Marshall said.

"He was there and there was good information to the group, there's a football knowledge there which comes with a lifetime in the game.

"He was in the dressing room before the game briefly, not a huge amount, but he introduced himself and wished the boys the best."
