Aston Villa earned another comfortable three points on Saturday afternoon thanks to a 2-0 win over Ipswich at Villa Park.

This victory, courtesy of yet another brace from Albert Adomah, moves Villa to just two points off an automatic qualification spot. However, Cardiff City have a game in hand against Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon.
