Martin O´Neill has urged his Aston Villa players to show no fear as they challenge for a European spot during the final three months of the campaign.

Villa are in strong contention for a UEFA Cup spot and even have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League after a run of only one defeat in their last 11 matches.

O´Neill said: "I don´t think it is to do with us trying to hold our nerve. It is not as if we have been a kind of Liverpool, searching for form. Every game is hard for us - but we should not be fearful of these games. There is a subtle difference between that and holding your nerve."
