Aston Villa took a fully deserved victory over Bristol City last weekend as we welcomed them to Villa Park on Saturday and stole a march over their own Play-Off aspirations for the campaign of 2018/19.

After a scoreless first half, our dominance on the day continued in the second period and we got our just rewards as Tammy Abraham scored from the penalty spot, before Conor Hourihane took his chance eleven minutes later to make it 2-0 in the 66th minute.

Bristol City did have the ball in the back of the net before seeing it ruled out and Famara Diedhiou did save some blushes with just over 15 minutes remaining in the tie, but they scored from their only registered shot on target, whereas we had 25 efforts overall and they can thank their keeper that more of our eleven shots on target didn’t nestle in the back of the net, as a higher scoreline wouldn’t have been unjustified.

It must be something in the water at Bristol though as Villa fans are very aware of the perception of Lee Johnson to former games against us, and it seems to be catching as their right back Jack Hunt took to social media in the aftermath of the game and for some reason, he felt they were unlucky and we only won owing to the referee.

Novel approach and the expected reaction to it left me with a smile on my face.
