Exclusive: Hutton reveals what would have had 'Angry' Smith fuming after Aston Villa clash
Alan Hutton revealed that he believes Dean Smith would have been angry over how quickly Burnley equalised against Aston Villa after John McGinn fired his side ahead in the 79th minute of the match.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-Villa full-back shared how it was disappointing that it took only 92 seconds for his former club to lose their lead in the second half of their clash with Burnley.
McGinn fired the Villains into the lead with 11 minutes of normal time to go after converting Trezeguet’s cross, but Chris Wood put Sean Dyche’s side back on level terms moments later by heading home Matthew Lowton’s cross.
Hutton pointed out that you can’t afford to concede so quickly after scoring and claimed it was something that teams work on to ensure it doesn’t happen.
When asked how Smith would have felt Aston Villa conceding after just scoring, Hutton told Football Insider: “Obviously it’s really disappointing but to be honest he’ll probably be angry.
“But it’s one of those things, Villa probably had enough chances throughout the game to nick another one and Burnley did as well.

“So yeah he’ll be disappointed but it’s something you have to work on, you can’t concede goals like that right after.”
Burnley had to come from behind twice during Saturday’s clash to earn a point at Villa Park and the result leaves Smith’s side still in 18th.
The Villans have dropped eight points from winning positions in the Premier League this season which is more than any other side in the division.
