Aston Villa man-of-the-match Ashley Young emerged at the final whistle clutching a magnum of Champagne, but revealed he had no immediate plans to pop the cork - if at all.
The master of the assist was delighted to have scored a goal of his own, as well as providing the match-winner for substitute Marlon Harewood, in yesterday's 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Reading at Madejski Stadium, but said he did not plan to start celebrating anything too soon - there are still 11 games to go this season.
He said: "The Champagne will go on the shelf in my house - I don't drink! I will definitely be saving it."
Young has provided so many scoring opportunities for his team-mates but was thrilled to add to his own personal goal-tally. The £9 million winger, who hit his fifth goal of the season in the 44th minute to set Villa on their way to victory, said: "I was delighted to get the goal. I have said all along it doesn't matter whether I set up the goals or score them as long as we get the three points, but to get on the scoresheet and then get an assist to win the game today was even better. We were delighted to get the three points."
He added: "I have said all along I want to be up there and scoring goals but as long as the team is playing well and I am playing well, then I am happy."
Young was full of praise for his team-mate Gabriel Agbonlahor, who had unselfishly set him up for the opening goal and for substitute Harewood. He said Villa always looked a threat going forward with so many pacy strikers.
Young said: "Gabby has been doing really well as has John (Carew) and then we have Marlon coming on as well and he is making a big impact. It is not just a team game but a squad game and we are all fighting for places and being kept on our toes. We all know that we have to keep playing well or someone will come in and take your position."
"Marlon is like everyone - everyone wants to start but it is a squad game and he has been making a massive impact whenever he comes on. He will be thrilled to have got the goal today and it was a brilliant goal. I got the ball and carried it and then flicked it in and for him to put it away in the way he did was amazing."
Team-mate Gareth Barry missed a first-half penalty but was upbeat at the end of the match as his error had not cost the team victory. He stepped up after Kalifa Cisse had handled in the area but saw his shot go woefully wide of Marcus Hahnemann's goal.
Barry said: "I kicked the ground as i ran up and just spent the next couple of minutes trying to forget about it. These things happen. I was just happy that we won the game and that it didn't cost us. I will still take the penalties."
The miss by the Villa skipper was the team's first failure from the spot this season and a rare blip for Barry. He said: "I have missed a couple before and hopefully if I get another straight away, I can slot it in and forget about this one. It was meant to go to the rfght side but it sort of shanked. I suppose at least I still sent the keeper the wrong way!"
Barry was full of praise for Villa's centrebacks, who made sure Reading's goalscoring opportunities were few and far between. He said: "Martin (Laursen) has been immense all season and Curtis (Davies) is playing with the same sort of confidence.
"Those two are gelling well together and [goalkeeper] Scott [Carson] looks confident behind them too. It wouldn't be too much of a surprise to see Martin's name in a Premiership All-Star XI come the end of the season. He is playing that well.
"John Carew is another player who is playing with great confidence at the moment and he showed in the game what he can do when it comes to defending too. He just missed out on a goal."
Villa now face Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Saturday while they wait to see if their next home match, against Middlesbrough, will remain on March 8. Should Boro beat Sheffield United in Wednesday night's FA Cup fifth-round replay and make it through to face Cardiff City in the quarter-finals on March 9, the league game will be put back until the following Wednesday.
