Two wins in their last two matches have significantly eased Aston Villa’s relegation concerns.
A disastrous start to 2017 saw any outside hopes of reaching the play-offs this season completely vanish and instead the Villains were peering cautiously over their shoulder at the relegation zone.
However, a narrow win against Derby gave them some confidence and they beat Bristol City 2-0 in midweek to jump up to 15th in the table and build up a nine point cushion over the relegation zone.
Tomorrow Aston Villa are presented with their best chance of getting three consecutive wins as they travel to bottom of the league side Rotherham United.
The Millers have had a shocking season, picking up 17 points in 34 games with three different managers and just four wins all season.
With 16 points separating them from safety, many have already assumed that they are dead and buried.
With not much to play for other than pride, Rotherham could succumb to another defeat and here are a selection of the best pre-game Tweets from Villa fans.
@AVFCOfficial if we beat Rotherham we will have a tough game vs Huddersfield to test us and test our positivity
