Aston Villa continued their excellent run of form with a 3-0 home win over Middlesbrough in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
Anwar El-Ghazi, John McGinn and Albert Adomah scored the goals for Villa, but the club’s supporters were keen to pay tribute to experienced midfielder Glenn Whelan.
The likes of McGinn, Tyrone Mings and Jack Grealish have received a lot of praise in recent matches, but Whelan was outstanding against Boro and that has been recognised.
The win on Saturday has moved Dean Smith’s side into the top six and they will fancy their chances of staying in the playoff spots between now and the end of the season.
Thogden has ranked his top 5 sets of Championship away fans for Pl>ymaker FC. Did your club make the list? Find out in the video below…
