A Wednesday evening, the Villa Park floodlights – what could go wrong…bogey team Brentford.
Fans were boosted by seeing new loan to potentially buy capture Anwar El Ghazi paraded on the pitch and fans in attendance also got to celebrate Jonathan Kodjia scoring for a second successive game in a row as his sharpness and confidence grows further following his lengthy lay-off with injury.
But this is Brentford, and they didn’t disappoint as they took the lead twice – this is also a more confident Villa – and Kodjia wasn’t going to be outdone and he struck five minutes into stoppage time to secure a second successive point and make it three goals in five matches.
You can’t go behind twice at home so it wasn’t a great day but we weren’t completely outplayed for a change, we had the possession and we edged chances overall so whilst some fans will undoubtedly disagree, it was another step in the right direction for me, even if it wasn’t a win.
We remain unbeaten so far this year.
