Stewart Downing hopes experienced players can keep Aston Villa in the Premier League

Aston Villa midfielder Stewart Downing is hoping to use the pain and experience of relegation to help his team steer clear of the drop zone this season.

Villa have surprisingly been struggling all season and are one of eight or nine teams that could get relegated come May. Downing was also part of Middlesbrough’s team that was relegated to the Championship in 2009.

The story is too old to be commented.
