Well, fellow Villans, plenty of optimism and rightly after such a good performance, cl sheet and result.— Thomas Dunning (@StanCollymore) November 10, 2018
We've been here before though with good wins in the FLC against good teams.
Consistency, consistency, consistency.
Manager will demand it, hope the players now do.#UTV
Villa did well to pick up all three points against Derby, while Forest will not be too displeased with their goalless draw with Stoke at the City Ground.
The Villans, the Rams, the Reds and the Potters all are aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship this season and perhaps even in the automatic promotion spots.
