Aston Villa won for the first time in the Championship since the start of March courtesy of a 3-0 home success over Reading on Tuesday night.
Defeats to Queens Park Rangers and Bolton Wanderers, in addition to a draw with Hull City, had led to concern amongst Villa supporters during a key stage of the season.
Steve Bruce’s side were resounding winners over Reading at Villa Park, however, as they cemented their spot in the playoffs with just six matches of the campaign remaining.
Jack Grealish played 75 minutes of the Championship match, and the 22-year-old again showed his class at Villa Park.
The midfielder has had his injury problems this season, but made his 21st Championship appearance of the campaign against Reading, and there is no question that he is an extremely popular figure with the club’s supporters.
Indeed, a number were keen to once again pay tribute to Grealish, who is valued at £4.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, on Tuesday night. A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
