It might still be early in the season, but it does appear that there will be a fascinating battle for the top six in the Championship this term.
Wolverhampton Wanderers currently lead the way after an impressive start to the 2017-18 campaign, while Cardiff City sit second – two points off the leaders.
Sheffield United and Leeds United are third and fourth respectively, and Aston Villa sit fifth after their 2-1 win over Fulham on Saturday afternoon.
It would be fair to say that the Villa supporters were not pleased with the team’s 2-0 defeat at Wolves last weekend, but Steve Bruce’s side picked up a massive three points on Saturday courtesy of goals from John Terry and Albert Adomah.
There is no question that the Villa fans are targeting promotion from the Championship this season, and the team’s performances in recent weeks suggests that they have a strong case to be considered.
On Saturday, Villa’s official Twitter account posted the updated Championship table, and the club’s supporters were out in force to reveal their delight.

Bouncing back from last week's defeat shows what a resilient team Bruce is building. Top 2 here we come! Fantastic result.

Remember when people were screaming for Bruce to be sacked… He just needed some time to make it his team.
