Aston Villa recorded one of their best results of the season by beating Play Off chasing Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Villa Park in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.
A goal in each half from Jonathan Kodjia proved to be enough for Villa to defeat The Owls who had Vincent Sasso sent off early in the second half for a dangerous challenge on Conor Hourihane.
The victory was Villa’s fourth in five league matches and Steve Bruce’s side now find themselves in the top half of the Sky Bet Championship table. After the match, fans took to Twitter to give their views on the result.
It wasn't pretty and we made it more difficult than it could have been but another effective efficient performance #avfc

Odd to be 12th in the Championship, a long way short of the playoffs and yet feeling mildly optimistic. #avfc

To beat a top 6 side with the number of injuries we have is a testament to the players & the team spirit we're building. UTV #AVFC

Decent performance that was today. If we could be more clinical, someone would get an absolute hammering #avfc
