Villa right behind McLeish - Given

Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given says the squad are "all right behind" manager Alex McLeish as they fight for Premier League survival.

Villa are currently three points clear of the relegation zone with two games remaining.

Given was speaking on BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast following Villa's annual end-of-season awards dinner where captain Stiliyan Petrov, diagnosed with acute leukaemia, was voted the club's players' player of the year.

The Ireland international reveals it is "difficult" for the team to watch Petrov fight "a huge battle", but insists it puts the club's "rough time" into perspective.
