ASTON VILLA FANS could be forgiven for thinking things couldn’t get any worse after their catastrophic Premier League campaign ended in relegation last year.

With seemingly little danger, Denmark international Okore inexplicably kicked the ball into his own net to extend the League Two side’s advantage.
