McAllister impressed by Dunne reaction

Aston Villa assistant manager Gary McAllister has hailed the positive response of Richard Dunne following their training-ground altercation and the defender being axed from the team. McAllister insists Dunne has a key role to play in Villa's future after the Republic of Ireland international was recalled for Sunday's 3-3 draw at Chelsea. McAllister said: "We are all desperate for the club to move forward. That is very clear. There has been a lot of change. "This group of players have had three managers this season. They started with Martin O'Neill in pre-season, then Kevin MacDonald and then Gerard Houllier came. "There has been a lot of change, loads of different ideas, training schedules, training times etc. The players have been asked to change. "But, as far as the incident with Dunny and myself, I don't have a problem with `Dunny'."
