Jedinak's Villa beat Wolves to boost promotion hopes

Jedinak's Villa beat Wolves to boost promotion hopes

Bruce's men sit in third position in the Championship table, just four points adrift of second placed Cardiff City, with 10 games still to play.

In contrast, Steve Bruce has been rocked by the news that Glenn Whelan will be out for several weeks with the calf injury he picked up in Tuesday night's 3-0 win at Sunderland and he definitely misses out, as do Axel Tuanzebe and Alan Hutton (both hamstring).

They were rewarded as early as the eighth minute, when a Robert Snodgrass corner posed all sorts of problems for the Wolves defence and the ball bounced around before Lewis Grabban nudged his pass to Adomah, who was on hand from close range to record his 14th goal of the season.


Next up for Villa is a home game against Queens Park Rangers tonight, and nothing less than a win will do, as they look to keep the pressure up on the top two. Adomah danced as the Holte End erupted while Bruce swivelled on the touchline, punching the air. Moments after Matt Doherty forced John Terry to clear off the line, the Wolves right-back galloped down the flank, nutmegging Neil Taylor along the way, before sliding a teasing ball into the box.

Now on a three-match winning run, Steve Bruce's high-flying Villa side will know that another crucial three points on Tuesday night will help them keep up the pace for a spot at automatic promotion. "Our duty is to try and chase".

Ante-post Championship favourites Aston Villa welcome runaway league leaders Wolves to Villa Park on Saturday evening. Santo summoned Benik Afobe and Helder Costa but Villa went on to toast a memorable win, sealed by Bjarnason, who drilled home low beyond Ruddy.
