Warnock: Screaming Villa defence key to success

Stephen Warnock says Aston Villa's new-look defence has settled quickly into their roles.

Warnock joined Villa at the same time as Richard Dunne and James Collins and has been delighted with the way they have all gelled together.

He told Villa's website: "I have been happy with my form and things have gone well as a unit at the back. We all joined at the same time and I think we've settled in well - that's been shown by our performances so far.

"It took a little while for me to get used to the rhythm of the team. It was a different style of play at Blackburn and I just had to become accustomed to the way the manager wanted me to play here.

"Richard and James have done well too and we've gelled well as a unit.

"Communication has been important for us. I am sure everyone can hear us on a matchday - the amount of screaming that goes on is impressive. We demand a lot of each other and it gets the best out of us."
