FOOTBALL: Hope for stars on Villa fringe.
The experienced trio have only been given limited chances at first-team level since Taylor returned to Villa Park in February and has put the accent chiefly on youth. But Taylor will not be afraid to bring them back into the picture if he feels it will benefit the club.
The Villa boss said: "For a lot of people outside of Villa Park, Dion Dublin may have become a forgotten man - but he's not and it's the same with Stone, Wright and Hadji.
"I've said to all of them 'providing you don't duck or dive with me, then I'm not going to duck and dive with you.
"I've said to them 'you've got contracts here, the club will honour them and be ready when the chance comes again'.
"Dion Dublin did that when he came on against Everton. He and Stefan Moore gave us that added bite when attacking."
