Aston Villa fans were overjoyed with Mile Jedinak’s derby performance

Aston Villa picked up their seventh league victory in a row on Sunday, defeating city rivals Birmingham 2-0 at Villa Park.

It was a deserved win for Steve Bruce’s side and the three points means they move up into second position in the English Championship table, well placed to win automatic promotion with just 15 games remaining before the end of the season.

Albert Adomah and Conor Hourihane were the goal heroes and while they won plaudits from supporters, it was Villa’s dynamic midfield display that really caught the eyes of fans.

Jack Grealish was superb throughout, bringing the game to their derby opponents, while Mile Jedinak produced a strong, disciplined performance to deny the visitors any joy in the final third.

Jedinak has appeared in less than half of Villa’s games this season but the decision by Bruce to bring him into the side was a tactical masterstroke.

Fans agreed, praising both their manager and the performance of the Australian on social media…
