Villa boss David O'Leary was a disappointed man, but like his opposite numer at Newcastle, he was happy with his side's display at St James' Park.
O'Leary: 'I don't think we deserved to be losing at half-time, but it was important at half-time to keep the lads' spirits up. I felt we had to keep going, playing, taking the game to them.
'We scored a good goal - I wanted us to go on and win the game and I thought we would, I thought we should have. Probably in my opinion, the best player for us, at least, missed the penalty.
'I didn't think it was 90 minutes for myself in any way. We are under pressure to perform in any game. We let ourselves down on Tuesday night. The buck stops with me. I pick the team and put it out and it was my responsibility on the night.
'We were well beaten, but going into that game, we had been playing quite well. If we hadn't had that game, everybody would have said Villa were on good form coming into this game.'
