Aston Villa have ended their six-match winless run in all competitions by defeating Rotherham United 2-0 in a Sky Bet Championship fixture at Villa Park.

Striker Tammy Abraham and midfielder Yannick Bolasie were on target for Villa as they won for the first time since early August to reduce the pressure on manager Steve Bruce.

Despite guiding the club to the Sky Bet Championship play-off final last season, Villa boss Bruce has come in for much criticism this term with his tactics being one of the reasons for the fans’ discontent at Villa Park. The win over Rotherham United may have reduced the heat on Bruce but many fans were left uninspired by the result when giving their views on Twitter after the match.

Aston Villa are back in action on Saturday when Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors to Villa Park.
