Three second-half goals led to Villa running out 4-1 winners in the West Midlands derby, leaving leaders Wolves with just a seven-point advantage over their local rivals.

Luke Freeman added a late third at Villa Park to move QPR up to 15th despite James Chester's consolation - the defender's third goal in three games.

Albert Adomah gave Villa the flawless start with a close-range strike in the eighth minute before Diogo Jota equalised ten minutes later but then two goals in five second-half minutes swung things in Villa's favour.

But as the spotlight continues to focus on him, authorities are also looking at the guy who captured the footage on his phone. Spitting at someone is classed as common assault, punishable by a fine, community order or up to six months in prison.

"We had all of that in abundance today and were backed by a wonderful crowd".

Vexed supporters of the Molineux club took to social media to vent about the Villa boss. I blame myself because I always thought it would be hard to get the bandwagon rolling again.

"I'd say given the context of the game, it's the best result since I've been here".

Steve Bruce's side, having thrashed the leaders Wolves 4-1 on Saturday, fell behind to Ryan Manning's header after 12 minutes and Jake Bidwell's deflected effort put the visitors 2-0 up at half-time. "They know that all the pressure is on the big clubs because of the expectation on their players".

"If I'd have done a wishlist years ago I couldn't have asked for much more - perhaps being 30 points clear at the top would have been nice, but unfortunately that's not the case!"

"But there's still some way to go and Tuesday will now be a more hard game than today".

The Wolves game was a great night for everyone connected with Villa and there will be a feel-good factor around the place tonight. It's a bad feeling but we've got a game on Tuesday, we've got to look up, get ready for that and really go again.
