Tim looks to make heroes out of Villans

Aston Villa's new manager says his relegation-threatened players can turn around their season if they lose their "fear factor".

Tim Sherwood was speaking on Monday after being appointed to succeed Paul Lambert as the Villans' boss.

Sporting a natty claret and blue Villa men's scarf , Sherwood took his first press conference with the Birmingham-based side languishing in the Premiership's bottom three.

But Sunday's FA Cup win over Leicester leaves the club in the all-important draw for the last eight. This is just one win away from a Wembley semi-final and only three victories from winning the tournament.

Sherwood, 46, said he wants less fear in his new side's play and also to get Christian Benteke, his star striker, more involved. If they do that, said Sherwood, all should be "fine".

Calling his acceptance of the post "a no-brainer", Sherwood looked forward to his first game in charge on Saturday, February 21 when Villa entertain Stoke City.
