Aston Villa now enter a well deserved break with the March international games now taking precedence in the football calendar and there was no better way to go into the Championship lull than with victory over fellow promotion hunting Middlesbrough.
Goals from Anwar El Ghazi, John McGinn and Albert Adomah gave us a comfortable 3-0 victory and the clean sheet was another massive boost for everyone. Four wins on the spin also sees us temporarily retake sixth place as we continue to put previous disappointments behind us.
With a number of positives to take from the game, on loan Bournemouth centre-half Tyrone Mings summed things up nicely as he took to social media following the game on Saturday afternoon.

With the way the 26-year-old has performed since his arrival, he’s already warmed himself to the hearts of fans so a positive reaction to his Tweet was always going to be on the cards.
Your an absolute monster mate, total privilege to watch you at work….. whatever happens between now and the summer I hope to see you in a Villa shirt for a very long time to come
