MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œWeโ€™ve played far better than that and lost but what we have seen in the last few days is the resilience, two clean sheets.

โ€œHe [Jonathan Kodjia] can drive us all mad at times, thereโ€™s no question about that. But when you look at his goals - thatโ€™s his 12th in what, 24 games, thatโ€™s not bad at all so fair play to him.

โ€œHe was devastated at half-time but heโ€™s come back. Heโ€™s got us a good goal again.โ€

Steve Bruce, Tuesday, 28 February 2017.

*BBC Sport*
Tuesday, 28 February 2017

*Jonathan Kodjia scored against his former club as Aston Villa beat Bristol City to record back-to-back wins for only the third time this season.*

Kodjia, who joined Villa in August in a reported ยฃ11m deal, endured a torrid first half, blasting a penalty over the bar after Gary Gardner was fouled.

But the 27-year-oldโ€™s superb header put the hosts ahead after the break.

Conor Hourihane tapped home his first Villa goal after Albert Adomahโ€™s shot was blocked to seal victory.

Kodjia, whose every touch was booed by the travelling supporters, was also instrumental in the build-up to Hourihaneโ€™s strike, superbly dispossessing Bailey Wright moments earlier.

Aston Villa had not won a game in 2017 prior to Saturdayโ€™s 1-0 victory over Derby County, but now move up to 15th in the Championship table, nine points clear of the relegation places.

However, defeat at Villa Park increases the pressure on Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson, with his side only out of the bottom three on goal difference and having lost 11 of their past 14 league matches.

They did twice strike the woodwork against Villa, in the first half through Wrightโ€™s header and then at 1-0 down via winger Calum Oโ€™Dowda.

Andre Green also hit the post with a brilliant long-range effort for the hosts, who have now kept clean sheets in two successive league matches for the first time since March 2015.
