Villa bounces back with a win

FOOTBALL: Brothers Aston Villa admits there is still plenty for it to work on to remain at the top of the Wide Bay League.

The side bounced back from its midweek loss in the semis of the NewsMail Cup with a 2-0 win over Bingera at Martens Oval.

In a devastating opening 15 minutes, the side scored two goals through Josh McInnes and Jaryd Bennier to move into second on the ladder.

But it could have been more.

"It should have really been put to bed a few minutes after half-time as we missed some really good chances,” Villa coach Glen Sparozvich said.

"We never felt comfort- able in the game with a 2-0 lead and we were happy to take the three points at the end,” Sparozvich said.

He said the side started to show the same form from earlier this season.

"It's a step in the right direction but some areas still wasn't 100% tonight,” he said.

"The boys were happy with the performance but know they can do better.”

For Bingera the first 15 minutes cost it dearly.

"We've got to address our starts because that cost us and we couldn't get it back,” Bingera coach Brett Kitching said.

"Credit to our boys who stuck to it and were not outclassed by Villa,” Kitching said.
