Goalkeeper Shay Given has pulled no punches about Aston Villa's current plight and admitted "we deserve to be where we are" ahead of Tuesday's crucial relegation battle with Bolton.

Villa have won only four home games this season and are five points above the drop zone after Saturday's goalless affair with Sunderland - their 15th draw of the campaign.

Given said: "It has been frustrating the whole season. We haven't had enough victories at home. We don't want to stumble the wrong side of the line because we know we are not safe yet. We are five points clear but Wigan have shown any results can happen at the bottom."
