It was certainly a mixed bag of reactions from Aston Villa fans when it came to social media following last night’s EFL Cup victory over Yeovil Town.

Travelling to Huish Park for the First Round tie of the competition this year, Villa took a narrow 1-0 victory on the evening to book our place in Round Two of the domestic Cup courtesy of a second-half Conor Hourihane effort as he connected with a ball across from Jonathan Kodjia.

With a disallowed goal for the hosts and a penalty save for summer signing Andre Moreira, it definitely wasn’t an easy game or a great performance and whilst some fans couldn’t help but remark about the performance in general, others were happy to have taken the victory given how often higher level clubs can come a cropper to lower level opposition at this round.

It does mean our best start to a season since 1962 and you can only beat what’s in front of you, but there’s no hiding it was a poor showing but we’re far from alone in that when you look at other results from last night.

Acknowledge it, improve on it, take the positives and move on to the next one.
