Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Matt Targett’s display at Wolves

A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to laud Matt Targett’s performance as the left-back shone in the Villans’ victory over Wolves on Saturday.

It looked as though Dean Smith’s side were going to have to settle for a point at Molineux. However, John McGinn was fouled in the box in stoppage-time.

Anwar El Ghazi stepped up and produced a brilliant penalty to settle the contest.

Villa came under plenty of pressure from the home side at times. They were certainly grateful to Emi Martinez for producing a number of outstanding saves.

But while Martinez will understandably grab many of the headlines, Targett’s display did not go unnoticed by many Villa supporters on social media.

The 25-year-old was handed a tough task ahead of the contest. It was going to be the former Southampton man who would have to try and keep Adama Traore quiet.

However, many felt that he did a superb job. As shown by Whoscored.com, no Villa player won more tackles or made more interceptions than Targett. He also managed five clearances.

Targett has not always been able to keep his critics quiet since his £11.5 million move last year (initial fee reported by Express and Star). But several fans feel that he has found another level this season.

And plenty insisted that the defender was one of Villa’s best performers as Smith’s men got another hard-fought win under their belts.

Here is how some of the fans reacted to Targett’s display…
