Tim Sherwood open to all options to keep Aston Villa in the Premier League

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood spoke to the media on Thursday, ahead of Saturday's English Premier League trip to Newcastle United.

Tim Sherwood has left the door open for a sports psychologist to aid Aston Villa's survival fight. The Villa Park chief insisted, though, his players must rediscover their character for the relegation run-in.

They go to Newcastle on Saturday second bottom of the Premier League after six straight defeats.

They have scored just 13 goals in 26 league games this season, the lowest in the top flight, and boss Sherwood would explore all options to improve their confidence and help Villa stay up.

Newcastle head coach John Carver is looking upwards rather than over his shoulder as the Barclays Premier League season enters its final phase.
