Adomah registers record goal for Aston Villa in Second City derby

Aston Villa have risen to second in the Championship table thanks to a 2-0 derby win over Birmingham City on Sunday afternoon.

Villa went on to seal the win nine minutes from time when Conor Hourihane pounced on a poor clearance to slam a ferocious strike up over Stockdale and into the net from 20 yards.

It was in midfield that the home side's superiority was most marked, with Albert Adomah and Robert Snodgrass providing width, assisted by willingly overlapping full-backs, and Jack Grealish outstanding inside them.

Villa's seventh successive league win was celebrated by a near-capacity 41,233 crowd, who delighted in Birmingham's downfall.

Canor Hourihane made it 2-0 with 9 minutes left to play as the home side snatched valuable points to keep their second position on the table.

Some grafting work by Maikel Kieftenbeld and David Davis kept Birmingham in contention and just before the break they should have taken the lead with their first strike on goal.

Not surprisingly it was Grealish who cleverly set up Adomah following a pass from Hutton to score with a low-raking shot as he cut in from the left.

The Aussie even provided the spark to have Birmingham's Cheikh Ndoye sent off in the game's final minutes after a melee that also involved Villa skipper John Terry.
