Gerard Houllier forgives James Collins and Richard Dunne

Gerard Houllier insists all sections of Aston Villa are united for the relegation fight ahead as he prepares to recall defenders James Collins and Richard Dunne for Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Everton.

Collins and Dunne were fined two weeks wages for their behaviour towards members of the coaching staff during a team bonding session at a health spa three weeks ago.

Houllier said: “The only thing I can say is that the events (involving Dunne and Collins) are finished. It has been dealt with, it is gone and over.

“If they are fit, they will play. It is as simple as that because they are personality players and they have the club at heart. They have also strong experience.”
