Aston Villa have enjoyed an upturn in results over recent weeks, with Dean Smith’s side now having eyes firmly on a play-off push.
This upturn in results has coincided with Jack Grealish’s return to first-team action, with the 23-year-old scoring goals in the wins over Derby County and Birmingham City.
On top of that there was a classy contribution in the midweek win over Nottingham Forest, which boosted Villa’s play-off hopes significantly on Wednesday.
Now, his and Villa’s focus is fully on tomorrow’s meeting with Middlesbrough, with the stand-in captain sharing a message on his personal Twitter account ahead of the clash at Villa Park.
