Aston Villa returned to winning ways in the Championship on Tuesday night as they put two unanswered goals past Rotherham United at Villa Park.
A run of five league games without a win had seen Villa drop down the table, but they put an important three points on the board against Rotherham.
Villa have actually jumped into the top six courtesy of the home success, and there is no question that they have one of the most talented squads in the Championship.
The Villa supporters are still not happy, however, and many have once again called for head coach Steve Bruce to be sacked.

It does seem unlikely that Bruce will be sacked at this stage of the season, especially if Villa continue to improve in the coming weeks, which should be the case.
However, the majority of Villa fans are still not convinced that the former Manchester United centre-back is the man to secure a return to the Premier League.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Villa fans can be seen below:
Football still turgid. Rotherham VERY poor and #avfc really laboured to the 3 points. We don’t look a team at all just a bunch of good players thrown together

Turning point? No. Rotherham were utterly awful and we made hard work of it. The ‘Claret & Blue Army / Steve Bruce’ song came out as it’s one of about five songs we have…

No chance is it a turning point. We were dreadful. No plan. No pattern. Slow build up. Just dreadful

No turning point, back to the issues within 3-4 games. Happens all the time

Not sure that an archetypal Steve Bruce win will change anyone’s opinion on Steve Bruce or be a turning point.
