Aston Villa supporters have praised Scott Hogan after he scored during their friendly at the weekend.
Villa beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0 yesterday, with Hogan scoring the only goal of the game, and the striker expressed his happiness to be on the scoresheet on social media.
Great effort from the boys after a long and tough week. Great to be on the score sheet ⚽️ pic.twitter.com/weHTO564YY— Scott Hogan (@ScottHogan_9) July 22, 2019
Hogan has had a difficult time at Villa since signing for £12 million (BBC Sport), with injury badly hampering his progress.
The striker was sent out on loan to Sheffield United last season, and looks unlikely to begin the season with Villa this time around.
But claret and blues fans have praised the rapid forward’s attitude.
Your attitude is commendable Scotty, we’re all behind you this season! Any player that gives 100% every time they pull on the claret and blue shirt like you are welcome at our club every day of the week!— AVFC Loyal (@AVFCLoyal) July 22, 2019
Hopefully you do well pre season, get going and start to fire and then push on in the premier league. Saving us money and showing everyone you are a decent striker. Good luck for the season— andrew spooner (@impaledgremlin) July 22, 2019

Keep going scott, your a work horse . Since you joined you have not had the service to your play , now we have better players to supply to you ...utv— Tony reynolds (@Tonyrey67385166) July 22, 2019
If Hogan does stay at Villa, he will surely only be a covering option following the signing of Wesley.
Dean Smith’s side are likely to be on the hunt for another forward this summer, and if they sign one then it seems likely that Hogan will go.
