Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has insisted the team remain in good spirits, despite the defenders Richard Dunne and James Collins' punishments for a drunken dispute with coaching staff.

The pair are understood to have been fined two weeks' wages for the incident during a team bonding session in Leicestershire last week. "I don't think morale has been affected," Houllier said ahead of today's visit of Wolves. "As far as I am concerned, the rest of the team trained well and is ready and prepared."
