ON THIS DAY

Despite an early Jack Grealish goal Roberto Di Matteo lose his second league game of the campaign having drawn 2 and won 1 to leave Villa in 16th place in the second tier and already well off the promotion pace.

Midfielder Mile Jedinak made his Villa debut aged 32 after joining from Crystal Palace for a fee of £4,140,000 earlier this month.

Right back Ritchie De Laet made his Villa debut aged 27 after joining from Leicester City for a fee of £2,070,000 earlier this month.

Future Villa centre forward Tammy Abraham scored Bristol City’s opener whilst fellow future Villa centre forward Jonathan Kodjia was left out of the squad pending his transfer.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo:* “For an hour we were much the better side and in control. But when they scored we lost confidence and didn’t look like a team any more. “It is not the first time that has happened and we need to work on it. At some point in a game you are going to come under pressure and we have to deal with that better. “We became like 11 individual players on the pitch and lost the organisation we had for 60 minutes. Conceding a goal seems to cause us to lose confidence and it’s a mindset we need to change. “Bringing in new players will help us, but we also need time to work together as a group. Conceding three goals as we did was not something I had seen from the team in the previous four games.”

MATCH REPORT

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 27 August 2016

*Bristol City scored three second-half goals as they came from behind to beat Aston Villa at Ashton Gate.* The visitors took an early lead when Jack Grealish hooked in Leandro Bacuna’s cross at the back post. But after dominating for an hour, the hosts made Villa pay when Pierluigi Gollini parried Lee Tomlin’s shot and Tammy Abraham stabbed in. Minutes later, Abraham set up Joe Bryan who finished in the far corner, before Tomlin’s spectacular 20-yard free-kick. City, who announced the signing of striker Jamie Paterson from Nottingham Forest at half-time, had lost their last two league games and were deservedly behind for much of this one. Villa should have added to Grealish’s second goal in four matches, but Jordan Ayew missed two good chances to double the lead either side of the break, dragging one wide and blazing the other into the stand. City, without striker Jonathan Kodjia, who is reportedly on the verge of signing for Derby, turned the game around with two goals in as many minutes, thanks to Abraham’s fifth of the season and Bryan’s first. Tomlin then curled home from just outside the box to wrap up the victory, which left Villa still searching for a first away league win since August last year. *Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson:* “A lot of clubs are interested in Jonathan [Kodjia], but none have yet matched our valuation. We are in a position where we don’t have to sell our best players unless a buying club comes up with sufficient dosh. “I left Jonathan out because of all the speculation, but nothing is signed and sealed yet. If he does leave we have contingency plans in place. “I was beyond anger at half-time. We were being totally outplayed and outclassed and we played with fear. I was so disappointed. “At half-time I told the players that I didn’t care if we lost 5-0, we had to show the Bristol City spirit. “Full credit to them because we ended up trouncing a very good side. They are the third relegated team we have played and the first we have beaten, which shows how far we are progressing.” *Aston Villa manager Roberto Di Matteo:* “For an hour we were much the better side and in control. But when they scored we lost confidence and didn’t look like a team any more. “It is not the first time that has happened and we need to work on it. At some point in a game you are going to come under pressure and we have to deal with that better. “We became like 11 individual players on the pitch and lost the organisation we had for 60 minutes. Conceding a goal seems to cause us to lose confidence and it’s a mindset we need to change. “Bringing in new players will help us, but we also need time to work together as a group. Conceding three goals as we did was not something I had seen from the team in the previous four games.”
