Adomah registers record goal for Aston Villa in Second City derby

Albert Adomah Scores In Aston Villa's Win Over Birmingham City On Sunday

Ireland global Conor Hourihane helped Aston Villa move into second place in the Championship after grabbing a goal in his side's 2-0 win over bitter rivals Birmingham this afternoon.

Albert Adomah opened the scoring before Conor Hourihane added a stunning second, while Jack Grealish was the star of the game, as Steve Bruce's side extended their unbeaten run against its city rival to 12 league matches.

Calderwood, standing in for the indisposed Steve Bruce, was full of praise for the all-round team performance.

The win moves Villa to second spot in the Championship, as Bruce's phenomenal record as a promotion-specialist begins to take full effect. That is more important than worrying about (league leaders) Wolves'.
