Analysis

Villa recorded a sixth consecutive win for the first time since 1990 as goals from Scott Hogan, Albert Adomah and Jack Grealish secured three points.

But Steve Bruce’s men made hard work of overcoming a battling Burton side who are in an increasingly difficult relegation scrap. 

The opening goal was a tap-in but its execution was superb. 

Cutting in from the right, Robert Snodgrass exchanged passes with Conor Hourihane before splitting the Burton defence with a diagonal pass to Albert Adomah. 

GrealishPostBurtonThe winger unselfishly knocked it across the six-yard box for Hogan to apply the finishing touch.

Birkir Bjarnasson and Grealish had earlier seen shots deflected for corners, and once the home side were ahead, their confidence blossomed. 

By half-time only a couple of fine Bywater saves from Hourihane and Hogan prevented Villa from doubling their lead.

The second goal finally arrived when Snodgrass crossed invitingly from the right for Adomah to head home at the far post, only for Villa to put themselves under pressure when Ahmed Elmohamady drove into the roof of his own net after Sam Johnstone had pushed out a Lucas Akins header.

Three minutes from the end Elmohamady made amends with a precise cross which Grealish volleyed home, although there was another scare when sub Liam Boyce scored the Brewers second in stoppage time.
