SOUNESS: FINISH THE JOB.
Villa need a home point to claim UEFA Cup qualification, while a draw would also guarantee Premiership safety for the Saints. But Little said: "We will be going full blast for victory because we know no other way. And, in any case, trying to hang our hat on a nil-nil result would be full of danger.
"Imagine if Southampton suddenly scored an 86th-minute goal. Where would that leave us in the eyes of our fans?"
Villa were humiliated by Swedish part-timers Helsingborgs last season, and Little said: "I know a lot more about European soccer now and I trust I have learned from many mistakes."
