Martin O’Neill says securing a Carling Cup semi-final place has put Villa in the perfect frame of mind for Hull’s visit to Villa Park and the next half-dozen games.

Villa can make good progress towards a top-four spot, a visit to Wembley and an FA Cup run if they enjoy a solid six weeks or so – starting with Hull’s visit on Saturday afternoon.

O’Neill said: ‘We are no entering a very important phase of the season. It is not season-defining, but we have some very big games.

‘Having that Carling Cup semi-final in the bag will do us all the power of good as we approch six very important games.’

The Villa boss is warning his side to beware of Jimmy Bullard – more for his goals than goal celebrations.

O’Neill told the Daily Mirror he enjoyed Bullard’s goal celebration at Man City last week and added: ‘It made a change from all those old celebrations that drive you insane, especially the baby celebrations and kissing the badge. They are complete cobblers.

‘But we should not get carried away into thinking that he is just a character. He is a very good footballer and one of the reasons Hull have picked up.

‘It does not matter how he is playing in the game, he always wants the ball and that is a great quality to have.’
