20-year-old youngster Andre Green took to social media following Aston Villa’s Tuesday evening victory over Yeovil Town.

Heading down to Huish Park for the First Round of the EFL Cup in 2018/19, Villa certainly didn’t have things go their own way as the hosts had a goal disallowed and we needed Andre Moreira to pull of a penalty save in the game. With Jonathan Kodjia feeding Conor Hourihane in the second half we finally got our noses in front and managed to keep it there until the fulltime whistle to take a narrow 1-0 win.

With everyone knowing it was a largely poor performance, despite the nine changes made from Wigan Athletic, Green admitted we had made things harder for ourselves than they needed to be and the players themselves new there was a hell of a lot of improvement needed.

But a win is a win.

As the above comments imply, the reaction was mixed to Green’s own performance on the day, let alone our overall one, but Villa aren’t the first to almost become a banana skin at this stage of the tournament, a number of other results on the night show it was a competitive first round again and we got through, that is all that matters for me.
