Aston Villa fans were in awe of Sam Johnstone on Tuesday night

Aston Villa bounced back from defeat to secure an important result at home to Cardiff City on Tuesday night, winning 1-0 thanks to a stunning late volley from midfielder Jack Grealish.

With the game deadlocked at 0-0, the ball popped up to Grealish 20 yards out, who promptly banged it in off the post with a goal of the season contender.

Despite that strike undoubtedly stealing all the headlines, it was another performer on the night that Villa fans were quick to pay tribute to – goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

Many felt he was the man of the match for a string of impressive saves across the 90 minutes that kept the Villans in the game before Grealish’s beauty.
