Villa winger Milner hails new defensive trio

Aston Villa winger James Milner has heaped praise on the impact of their new defenders.

Villa have been in excellent form defensively since the arrivals of Richard Dunne, James Collins and Stephen Warnock.

And Milner feels their solid platform has given the rest of the team confidence to go and attack.

He told AVTV: "I'm delighted for the lads at the back. It is never easy moving club and settling in.

"It takes you a while but they all seem to have slotted straight in and that's all credit to them.

"They are working as a unit straight away and you can see from our defensive record the last few games it has been very solid."
