MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* “I thought the result was fully deserved. The only thing missing was we should’ve scored far more goals. Because we had some great chances, we had one of those days where the goalkeeper had a great match, we’ve missed some big chances today, our play at times was exceptional. “Kodija’s gone to have a scan. Jack’s just ill, he had a fever. When I spoke to him this morning he was devastated. He couldn’t even go upstairs to take a shower. “Hopefully the monkey’s off our back now, we’ve got a win without Jack Grealish in the team.”

MATCH REPORT

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 13 April 2019

*Tammy Abraham scored against his former club Bristol City as Aston Villa continued their charge towards the Championship play-offs with an eighth successive win.* Abraham’s penalty and Conor Hourihane’s low strike ensured a swaggering second-half Villa display would be rewarded with victory over one of their top-six rivals. Famara Diedhiou’s acrobatic finish with 17 minutes left kept the Robins in the contest, but the hosts were fully deserving of their eighth win in a row - the first time they have managed such a sequence since 1975. Dean Smith’s side are now four points ahead of City in the table, maintaining their five-point cushion to Middlesbrough in seventh. After a cagey opening period during which Albert Adomah headed against the post and City’s former Villa striker Andreas Weimann had a goal disallowed for offside, Villa blew the visitors away in the second half and only an inspired display by goalkeeper Max O’Leary prevented a more one-sided scoreline. The 22-year-old academy product produced a string of brilliant reaction saves, twice denying Hourihane at point-blank range, while he also tipped Neil Taylor’s effort around the post when one-on-one. But O’Leary could do nothing about Abraham’s penalty, given for a foul by Jack Hunt on Hourihane and converted ruthlessly despite the Chelsea loanee having missed from the spot against Rotherham United on Wednesday. It was Abraham’s 24th goal of the season - against the club with whom he really established himself during a season-long spell during 2016-17. Although Diedhiou’s clever finish halved the deficit after Hourihane had eventually capped his energetic midfield display with a goal, it was still Villa who looked the more likely to score again at 2-1. The Robins remain in sixth and have a game in hand on the majority of the teams around them, but are now just one point above Boro, who narrowed the gap by winning at home to Hull. *Aston Villa boss Dean Smith told BBC WM:* “I thought the result was fully deserved. The only thing missing was we should’ve scored far more goals. Because we had some great chances, we had one of those days where the goalkeeper had a great match, we’ve missed some big chances today, our play at times was exceptional. “Kodija’s gone to have a scan. Jack’s just ill, he had a fever. When I spoke to him this morning he was devastated. He couldn’t even go upstairs to take a shower. “Hopefully the monkey’s off our back now, we’ve got a win without Jack Grealish in the team.”
