Aston Villa got back to winning ways in the English Championship on Saturday, defeating Sheffield Wednesday 4-2.
It was a hugely important three points, especially after poor results in recent matches, and Steve Bruce’s side showed tremendous spirit to come from behind twice to secure victory in the final five minutes of the match.
With the match poised at 2-2 heading into the closing moments, Conor Hourihane popped up with a fierce shot to put them ahead before Robert Snodgrass slotted home a penalty in injury time.

Fans were delighted with the performance and result for the most part, but did have criticism for midfielder Josh Onomah, whose substitution on the hour mark was the catalyst for the comeback.
Supporters are now calling for him not to be selected in future, believing that the likes of Callum O’Hare would be a far better option.
Is it time to stop playing the Tottenham Hotspur loan star?

Great to come back and win the game 4-2, but I'm still against Onomah getting in the squad recently. Don't feel that he offers more than the likes of Callum O'Hare, Hepburn-Murphy or Corey Taylor who are all waiting in the wings. #AVFC

Onomah just doesn’t seem to fit our unified squad, looks lost, doesn’t fit in. Had potential to be a star at this level, not living upto it #AVFC

Watching Snodgrass and Onomah, two loan players, the difference in attitide is stark. One has been through the lower leagues and has the will and fight to win, the other arguably an example of someone paid too much too young. #avfc

Game changed after Onomah went of. He has absolutely no effect on games. Hopefully Bruce saw that today. Davis in and Grabban out wide helped us. Terry a bit off pace today, but Chester is one talented defender! #utv #avfc

Please get Jack and Adomah back fit. Never play Onomah again – I'm not "scapegoating" him he is average and doesn't suit out style or play. Too slow on the ball and rarely finds a forward pass. Taylor was excellent when he came on; made us solid down our left. #AVFC

It’s a shame Onomah don’t show the same passion as Snodgrass and our other loan players.. the kids definitely got the talent but he’s very inconsistent #AVFC

Josh Onomah needs to be sent back to spurs, wether he’s not good enough or he doesn’t want to be here is irrelevant, awful yet again. And we have Calum O’Hare not even in the squad! Piss poor management #avfc
