Aston Villa fans loved Mile Jedinak’s performance against Middlesbrough

Aston Villa picked up a huge victory away to Middlesbrough on Saturday, their 1-0 win putting them on the verge of progression to the English Championship play-off final at Wembley.

It’s effectively half-time in the tie and Steve Bruce’s side know that one strong performance at home will ensure they head into the Wembley showdown for a place in next season’s English Premier League.

A first half header from Mile Jedinak was enough to secure the win, leaving Villa fans delighted and excited about Tuesday night’s match at home to Tony Pulis’ side.

They were also full of praise for Jedinak’s all-round performance throughout the 90 minutes, with the 33-year-old producing a fine defensive midfield display to protect his back four and restrict Middlesbrough to just a few chances.

Supporters will now be hoping he can hit those heights in the second leg, with another strong defensive performance likely required to keep a determined Boro side out.
