Aston Villa Manager \ Head Coach Dean Smith during the Sky Bet Championship match between Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa at City Ground on March 13, 2019 in Nottingham, England.

Aston Villa continued their promotion charge by winning their seventh game in a row on Wednesday night.

Aston Villa fans were in awe of Mile Jedinak following his performance during his side's 2-1 win against Rotherham on Wednesday night.

The 34-year-old came on as a first-half substitute when centre-back Tyrone Mings was sent off for handling the ball in the penalty area – Will Valulks converted the spot-kick.

After winning six games on the bounce in the Championship, Villa were a goal down, reduced to ten men and on the back foot away from home.

 

But the likes of Jedinak, John McGinn, Jonathan Kodjia and Jack Grealish stepped up after the break as Dean Smith's side recorded a valuable three points in their race for promotion.

Jedinak, who has hardly featured under Smith since his arrival in October, put in a powerful display at the heart of the club's defence.

It is fair to say that the Villa Park faithful appreciated his effort and performance, especially given the fact that he came onto the pitch in difficult circumstances.

Here is a selection of Villa fans on Twitter reacting to Jedinak's performance:

After seven wins on the bounce, there is no doubt that Villa are now in the driving seat in earning a top-six finish at the end of the season.

At the weekend, they host sixth-placed Bristol City in a clash that could all but confirm their playoff status.
