Aston Villa moved to within a point of the automatic promotion spots last night after Robert Snodgrass scored a late winner to hand Steve Bruce’s side the points at Sheffield United.
A closely fought game was settled in the dying minutes of the game when the on-loan winger popped up to give the visitors a priceless late victory, sending the travelling Villa fans into hysterics.
Steve Bruce’s side have been in wonderful form as of late, and following promotion rivals Derby’s goalless draw at Millwall, the former Birmingham City boss is now just a single point from breaking into the top two.
Bruce has spent well since his appointment as Villa boss at the start of last season, and his well-assembled squad appear to be finally exhbiting their dominance at this level.
Fans were absolutely delighted with their side’s late goal at Bramall Lane, and took to Twitter to celebrate the priceless three points…
What a win! Massive 3 points

What a fantastic performance, and an even better result – is the charge for automatic promotion on? @samjohnstone50 is NOT the best goalkeeper in the @SkyBetChamp , he is the best goalkeeper in ALL four English divisions! #SHUAVL #astonvillafc #astonvilla #avfc #PartOfThePride
