Villa ace Albert Adomah spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's impressive 2-1 win away at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, and raved about his teammate Keinan Davis, claiming that Steve Bruce really trusts the youngster, as quoted by the club's official website.

The west Midlands outfit cemented their place inside the top six with their victory at Loftus Road, and now sit comfortably in fifth position in the Championship table, after a return of 29 points from the 17 games they have played thus far.

Bruce has had to deal with somewhat of a mini injury crisis over this past month, with some of his key men absent from action, and he has been forced to put his faith in 19-year-old Davis as his solitary striker.

Villa manager Steve Bruce reacts after a near miss during the Sky Bet Championship match between Aston Villa and Middlesbrough at Villa Park on September 12, 2017 in Birmingham, England.

"Davis is really growing now. He's still learning, but he was brilliant – especially in his hold up play. It was key for us that he did that well, our link-up play was important. He's the only fit striker we have at the moment, but the manager trusts him. Keinan is very down to earth and humble, but he's growing in confidence and maturing in the changing room."

Next up for the Villans is a pair of home games against rock-bottom Sunderland and ninth placed Ipswich Town respectively, and a return of six points from those games really would cement their place inside the play-off spots.
