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.

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.
