Analysis

Villa moved back in the Sky Bet Championship play-off places thanks to a 2-0 away victory at Preston.

Steve Bruce’s men are up to fifth after goals from James Chester and Robert Snodgrass earned us all three points.

ChesterPrestonChester rose highest to nod us in front on 12 minutes before Snodgrass doubled the lead on 33 minutes with an accomplished finish.

It was thoroughly deserved as the claret and blues impressed from start to finish.
