Manager Alex McLeish has admitted life is not easy dealing with the Aston Villa boo-boys.

Once again McLeish was barracked by his own fans during Saturday's 0-0 draw at Wigan. Fans chanted "you don't know what you're doing" following the second-half introduction of Emile Heskey.

"Nobody likes it," he said. "I can't say it is water off a duck's back and I don't mind it. I understand the modern-day thinking but I am not going to get into a spat with my own supporters. I need those guys."
