Many Aston Villa fans were disappointed after their side’s failure to beat Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park in the Sky Bet Championship left the club without a win in five league matches.

Villa needed a 93rd-minute Conor Hourihane free-kick to rescue them from defeat in Lancashire against a Blackburn Rovers side which has been assembled on a relatively tight budget and looked every bit as good as their opponents.

The result means that Aston Villa are still searching for their first league win since 11 August when they beat Wigan Athletic at Villa Park. Manager Steve Bruce is coming in for plenty of criticism from fans with many suggesting on Twitter that his time is up and that a change is needed.

Aston Villa are back in action on Tuesday evening when Rotherham United are the visitors to Villa Park.
