Stephen Warnock calls for the Aston Villa squad to show their character in order to stave off relegation.

Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock has claimed that the team need to show their character if they are to ensure safety from relegation this season.

Alex McLeish's side lost 2-1 to Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday to leave them just three points clear of the relegation zone and Warnock admits that the side must fight for safety.

The former Blackburn Rovers full-back said: "It's not a nice situation to be in. We need fighters now.

"The youngsters are learning the hard way but it's not easy for the senior lads as well.

"It's a real test of character and we have to stand up and be counted now."

Villa face a local derby in their next fixture as they prepare to travel to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
