All the action from our reserves' 2-1 win against Aston Villa in the Barclays Premiership Reserve League South at Villa Park on Tuesday night.

THE KEY ACTION...

5mins: Barnard wide to Hutton, he ran at Lowry and Ridgewell, low cross to near post that Barnard couldn't quite turn on target.

15.06: Barnard upended on edge of box, O'Hara curled free-kick a yard over.

18.55: Archbald-Heville important header away as O'Halloran dived in for Herd's cross.

27.50: GOAL - SPURS. Ball kept alive in and around Villa's area following a corner, a number of 50-50s won and eventually O'Hara turned inside Lund and drilled a low shot from 20 yards that deceived goalkeeper Henderson in flight and nestled in the centre of the goal.

30.00: SAVE. Herd played one-two with Stieber, Alnwick quickly out to narrow angle and make fine save from 12 yards.

39.12: CLOSE. Quick break from Villa attack started with Murphy's pass to Hutton, he released Barnard who ran at Ridgewell before lashing low shot from the corner of the box that Henderson looked to have fingertipped wide, no corner awarded though.

44.39: GOAL - SPURS. Great goal. Move started all the way back with Alnwick and involved a number of passes before Mills played it up to Barnard, 40 yards from goal, he played a one-two with Murphy, controlled and placed a firm drive beyond the diving Henderson into the bottom corner.

54.40: Alnwick quickly out of his goal to make sliding save at feet of Angel.

56.55: CHANCE. Herd squared for Angel, central, 16 yards out, had time to pick his spot and curled effort just wide.
