Albert Adomah struggled to make an impact for Aston Villa in Wednesday night’s defeat to Brentford and he was heavily criticised by supporters on social media as a result. The 31-year-old has been short of form all season and surprisingly continues to start for Villa. His latest showing, however, might be the nail in the coffin.

Against Brentford, Adomah failed to register a shot on target and he didn’t create a chance before being hooked off in the 58th minute for Ahmed Elmohamady. He made only 18 passes in the game and didn’t find a teammate with any of his crosses on the night. Fans made their feelings clear and Dean Smith might finally take their advice and take him out of the spotlight.

The Ghanaian international has failed to score a goal in 22 Championship appearances this season, making just two assists. With Andre Green and Jonathan Kodjia waiting in the wings on the bench, it might be time for Smith to consider a change ahead of Saturday’s meeting with West Bromwich Albion. Villa’s slim hopes of reaching the playoffs may depend on it.
