Aston Villa fans happy to settle for a point in Second City Derby

Derbies are always a tricky proposition and the Second City Derby between Aston Villa and Birmingham City is always one of the most passionate in the country.

On these occasions form can go out of the window, so Steve Bruce and his team will likely be happy at having earned a point away to their struggling rivals on Sunday.

It wasn’t a classic for the neutral, with both teams playing out a 0-0 draw, but it’s perhaps a better point for Birmingham than it is the Villans given their respective league positions.

Both sides went close to opening the scoring. For Steve Cotterill’s side it was Jota who had the best chance, fluffing his effort and blazing over the bar when presented with a second half opportunity. For the Villans, John Terry went closest, his header going just wide.

Villa supporters are nonetheless content with the draw and having finished the weekend in the play-off positions can look ahead to Wednesday’s trip to Preston North End with confidence.
