Aston Villa have moved up to second in the Sky Bet Championship table after recording a 2-0 victory over bitter rivals Birmingham City at Villa Park.
Albert Adomah and Conor Hourihane got the goals for Villa in the second half as Steve Bruce’s men chalked up a seventh consecutive league win.
Villa are looking good to sustain a push for automatic promotion and after the match, fans took to Twitter to give their views on a much-welcome derby day victory.

That was such a quality performance. All over the pitch. So proud of the whole team. 7 in a row, 2nd in the league, best form I can remember and finally a joy to be an #avfc fan.

I’m not gonna lie, I was nervous about that game. These derbies have been too cagey lately. Looking back, the game seemed more even than it actually was.

Great win. Should have scored in the first half did in the second. Absolutely brilliant. Hourihane always has that in the locker. King Albert with a great goal. Grealish again sensational running games. #AVFC

Aston Villa’s current unbeaten run faces a significant test on Saturday when Bruce takes his side to the other in-form side in the division, Fulham.
