Villa boss Sherwood: Joe Cole great with young players

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood says Joe Cole's experience can be crucial in their survival fight.

Cole has been struck down with hamstring problems.

"He's been in the dressing room before the game, talking to the players. We've got a relatively young squad so he's valuable to me."
