No complacency, no fear - Kev

Kevin Bond insists there will be no complacency as we try to edge further away from the Premier League's danger zone with a positive result at Villa on Sunday.

We travel to Villa Park on a run of four matches unbeaten and one defeat in the last seven in league action.

That run has lifted us away from the lower reaches of the table and we go into Sunday's fixture 13th in the standings but still only four points clear of the bottom three.

A point against Villa - now fifth on goal difference - will lift us over Hull and Bolton on goal difference and into 11th.

"We're confident we'll be fine but we haven't got enough points yet to be fine," said assistant boss Kevin. "We've still got a few matches left and we need to continue picking up points.

"The table can look so much different from one set of results to another and at this moment we can't look too far ahead of ourselves.

"As soon as we can start looking up rather than down the better it will be for everyone."

Villa are level on points with Arsenal as they fight for that fourth Champions League spot.

"They've had a terrific season," added Kevin. "They have kept a settled side throughout most of it although they've chopped and changed a bit recently because they've had so many matches.

"They've had a couple of indifferent results but they are a cracking side.

"They play high-tempo football, they'll be in our faces and it will be a difficult game but a game we're looking forward to.

"We've done well against the top teams this season and those games have brought the best out of us.

"So there is no need to fear it. We'll go there, keep our concentration, do nothing silly at the back and hopefully get something from the game."
