ON THIS DAY

Villa suffer their first real setback since the calmness in team selection descended on Steve Bruce, losing two early goals and an unbeaten home record as well as John Terry and Robert Snodgrass to first half injuries.

Jack Grealish however comes on as a 77โ€™ substitute for his first appearance of the season.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce*

โ€œWe got rocked by a stunning goal. A wonderful strike from the boy. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever been a goal down after 20 seconds before.

โ€œIt rocked everybody. We huffed and puffed without ever having that real cutting edge. But it was a big blow losing both John Terry and Robert Snodgrass.

โ€œChris Samba came on and did well and he scored when we went gung ho and went for it towards the end, but really it was an awful afternoon for us.โ€

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 4 November 2017

*Aston Villa surrendered their unbeaten home Championship record this season as they lost to Sheffield Wednesday.*

Adam Reach and Jordan Rhodes both netted for the second game running as the Owls ended a run of three straight away losses to enjoy a rare win at Villa Park.

Villa were hit by first-half injuries to John Terry and Robert Snodgrass.

Terryโ€™s stand-in Chris Samba got one back for the hosts in injury time, his first for Villa, but it was not enough.

Villaโ€™s afternoon got off to a nightmare start in the very first minute when, from keeper Kieren Westwoodโ€™s hoof upfield, an off-balance Terryโ€™s clearing header fell to Ross Wallace.

He moved it left and it fell nicely for Reach to power forward and hit a dipping left-volley into the top left corner from 25 yards.

Terry then left the fray on 20 minutes - and just three minutes later, Gary Hooper put through Rhodes, whose right-foot shot found the bottom right corner.

Having previously not scored in the league since March, it was his second goal in successive games - just as it had been for Reach, who is now on a three-game scoring run.

Villa then lost Snodgrass, who had been a pre-match doubt with a rib injury, five minutes before the break, allowing Callum Oโ€™ Hare on for his home league debut.

Winger Jack Grealish also came off the bench late on to make a first appearance of the season after recovering from the freak kidney injury he suffered in pre-season.

But, even though Samba pulled one back in injury time, it could not prevent Villa losing at home in the Championship for the first time since 15 April.

The Owls climb back up to 11th in the table, two points outside the play-off places - and three behind Villa, who remain fifth.

*Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce told BBC WM:*
