Aston Villa forward Scott Hogan scored his sixth Championship goal of the campaign in Tuesday night’s 3-0 win over Reading at Villa Park.
The 25-year-old’s goal tally has been called into question on a number of occasions this season, but there is no doubting his passion and commitment to the cause.
The Reading match was huge for Villa when considering their recent stutter, and Hogan scored the third in what was a 3-0 success for Steve Bruce’s side.
Hogan’s number of goals is not exactly impressive for a team challenging at the top end of the table, but he remains a popular figure with the club’s supporters.
Hogan, who joined Villa from Brentford in January 2017, was absolutely everywhere on Tuesday night as Reading struggled to live with the movement of the Republic of Ireland international.
The Villa supporters have insisted that Hogan’s work does not go unnoticed, with many taking to social media to hail the attacker.
