Aston Villa enter their game at home to Sunderland this evening full of confidence, after emerging from a tough Saturday fixture at QPR with three points.
An Albert Adomah double turned the game on its head following an Jamie Mackie’s early opener, with the result ensuring Villa remain firmly in the playoff mix.
Manager Steve Bruce’s side have impressed this season following a difficult first spell in the second tier, and are being touted as one of the favourites for promotion this semester.
However, the Villains have been struck by disappointing injury news in recent weeks, with key men John Terry and Jonathan Kodjia confined to the sidelines with long-term injuries.
The squad must come together in their absence, and three points against bottom side Sunderland would be the perfect response to their loss.
Chairman Dr Tony Xia took to Twitter to rally the fans ahead of the clash at Villa Park, with fans declaring their excitement at the prospect of watching their beloved side under the lights on Tuesday evening…
Can’t wait ‘!!! ????????????

We should absolutely hammer these guys, they are woeful! Anything less than 3-0 would be disappointing. Sunderland are the 24th best team, we're the best and at home. Prediction: 5-1 home win.
