Some Aston Villa fans on Twitter are slaughtering Mile Jedinak.

The Villans made it two wins from two in the Championship, but they rode their luck to do so.

Aston Villa beat Wigan Athletic 3-2 in the West Midlands yesterday afternoon, with Birkir Bjarnason grabbing a last-minute winner for Steve Bruce's side.

It was an erratic defensive performance from the hosts and much of that is perhaps down to Bruce's decision to play Jedinak - a central midfielder - in the middle of defence.

 

The Australia international had some good moments, but he more or less cost Aston Villa a goal when his poor back pass led to Nick Powell equalising for the Latics on 41 minutes.

The 34-year-old is in his third season at Villa Park following a £4 million switch from Crystal Palace two years ago.

But some Aston Villa fans were firm in their desire to never see him as a centre-back again.

Despite the error, Jedinak got away with it and it's been a satisfactory last week or so for Bruce's side, who also retained the services of Jack Grealish amid huge speculation about a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
