Aston Villa fans hail Bruce for getting tactics right against Wolves

Aston Villa were the underdogs heading into Saturday’s Championship clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The supporters had to witness Nuno Espirito Santo’s side thump Leeds United 3-0 at Elland Road in midweek.

The results got a lot of Villa fans talking on social media, some of which were nervous about this weekend’s encounter.

It turns out that they were worried for nothing as Steve Bruce’s side earned a 4-1 triumph over the Championship leaders.

Albert Adomah, James Chester, Lewis Grabban and Birkir Bjarnason got on the scoresheet, while Diogo Jota was the sole scorer for the visitors.

Villa managed to nullify Wolves for periods of the game in the second half, and Bruce has received plenty of praise from the fans for his approach to the game.

The Midlands outfit remain third in the league table, but they have closed the gap to the automatic promotion places to just four points.

Wolves are still at the top of the standings with a three-point advantage over second-placed Cardiff City.
