Fans react as Aston Villa record 13th Championship defeat of season

Aston Villa’s winning streak in the Championship was cut short at three games on Tuesday night following defeat to Huddersfield Town.

Steve Bruce’s men seemed to be on the up when they claimed victories over Derby County, Bristol City and Rotherham United, but taking on third-placed Huddersfield proved to be too much of a challenge.

Twenty-two points separate Villa and the Terriers in the table, with Bruce’s side residing 15th with little or no hope of reaching the playoffs this season.

The Midlands outfit headed into the match at John Smith’s Stadium as underdogs and they were unable to upset the odds as Tom Smith nabbed the one and only goal in the 69th minute for Huddersfield.

Bruce blamed his team’s failure to find that clinical touch, and many fans thought the same after the final whistle.

Plenty took to Twitter to give their views, and while some were upset by the result, others decided to look at the big picture.
