'Very proud', 'Main man': Aston Villa fans react to performance of Tammy Abraham
Aston Villa beat Birmingham City 1-0 yesterday to ensure a league double over their fierce local rivals.
In a hotly-contested derby game, it was Jack Grealish who won the day for Dean Smith’s side.
The 23-year-old fired beyond Lee Camp in the 67th minute to send the Villa faithful into raptures behind the goal.
In truth, it was a scrappy affair at St. Andrew’s.
The game could have swung either way but it was Dean Smith who saw his side bolster their top-six chances.
It’s now two wins on the spin for the Villans, with Nottingham Forest next on their radar on Wednesday night.
Given the quality at Dean Smith’s disposal, you wouldn’t back against the club gatecrashing the play-off places.
It will take a stunning run for Villa to oust any of the team’s currently in the top-six but they certainly have the players to do it.
Following yesterday’s game, several Villa players took to Twitter to state their glee at the derby-day result.
One of those was Tammy Abraham, who produced a decent performance in attack.
The on-loan Chelsea striker has netted 21 goals this season and will be a big player for the club between now and the end of the season.
We looked at the best tweets following Abraham’s comments yesterday…
