Aston Villa set hugely-impressive club record with win over Millwall

Aston Villa’s victory over Millwall this afternoon saw the Claret and Blue set a new club record, perfectly summing up just how impressive the recent run of form being enjoyed by Dean Smith’s men has been.

Kodjia decides it

Villa welcomed Millwall to Villa Park in the first of the day’s Championship fixtures a short time ago.

The two sides headed into proceedings with very different season targets in mind, with the hosts’ stellar recent streak having seen them vaulted into the playoff picture.

Visitors Millwall, on the other hand, are currently in the midst of a tense relegation battle, having sat just 3 points clear of 22nd-placed Rotherham ahead of kick-off.

As such, when the 90 minutes were said and done in Birmingham, it came as little surprise to see hosts’ Villa emerge victorious.

Jonathan Kodjia bagged the only goal of the clash, getting on the end of a flowing team move to slot home at the near post with half an hour on the clock.

Their victory saw the Villans move further clear of 6th-placed Middlesbrough, and to within 2 points of West Brom in 4th.

Villa on fire

And, as outlined above, their place in the Championship table aside, the latest 3-point haul secured by Dean Smith’s men also saw them become the owners of an impressive new club record:
