Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham has heaped praise on his teammates as they came from behind to pick up yet another three points against Rotherham United on Wednesday night.
Writing on Instagram, the Chelsea loanee praised the strong mentality of the squad after playing most of the match with ten men after Tyrone Mings was sent off in the first half.
Posting alongside a photograph of himself after the match, Abraham wrote: “Dug deep for them 3 points last night. 10 men the whole game. What a team.”
After picking up two yellow cards inside a 15 minute spell, Mings was given his marching orders just half-an-hour into the clash.
And they fell behind just two minutes later as well when the Millers’ star man Will Vaulks tucked away a penalty, but Villa roared back in the second half.
In a frantic six minute spell after the restart, Jonathan Kodjia levelled things with a spot-kick of his own before a wonderfully worked goal was started and finished by Jack Grealish to ensure Dean Smith’s side extended their run to seven wins on the bounce.
Villa’s squad depth really came to the fore last night.
Abraham was not at the peak of his powers and struggled against the Millers’ backline, but when Kodjia was called upon he really stepped up to the plate.
It all bodes very well indeed for their chances in the play-offs.Like what the FLW have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
