Villa win consecutive League games for the first time since November and now have three wins in their last five as their terrible four month spell under Vic Crowe appears to be over. Villa climb back to joint twelfth and amazingly are still only seven points adrift of the final promotion place although achieving that has long been shelved as a season target.
