Aston Villa made it a remarkable ten wins from their last ten games thanks to a 1-0 victory against Millwall at Villa Park. 

From the first whistle it was clear that Millwall were set up to defend and frustrate Villa with the hope of heading back to London with what could be an important point in their fight against relegation.

They managed to keep it up for thirty minutes, but John Mcginn, Jack Grealish, and Anwar El-Ghazi combined to set-up Jonathan Kodjia for the game’s only goal. 

This goal meant that Millwall had to come out and play, which started to leave more space for Villa to exploit. However, they couldn’t find a second goal before half-time. 

Millwall started the second-half brightly as Villa seemed to take their foot off the gas a bit, meaning Tyrone Mings and his fellow defenders had some work to do, which they did admirably. 

Villa finally woke up and started pushing for the goal that would kill off the game, but some poor finishing, alongside some great keeping from David Martin in the Millwall goal, meant that it was a more nervous affair than then home fans expected.
