Mile Jedinak praised for 'immense' performance for Aston Villa


His second half goal helped Villa to a 2-0 win over city rivals Birmingham.

The win was the seventh match in a row the Villains have won in the league and took them a point ahead of Derby County as they look to secure an automatic promotion spot.

Bruce only returned from compassionate leave after the death of his father a day earlier, and the shed a tear as his side captured the lead on the hour mark. It was only Jedinak's sixth full match of the season.

Villa, loaded with experience, were the better side and goals by Albert Adomah and Conor Hourihane in the second half made for an appropriate scoreline.
