Gabby Agbonlahor believes fan support is worth its weight in gold for Villa.
Agbonlahor has been delighted with the positives vibes coming from the terraces this season, despite the lowly league position.
The star striker thinks that was epitomised by the lauding of the players after the Newcastle game, despite the frustrating loss.
Agbonlahor says that fervour from the stands is recognised and appreciated by the first team squad.
And he thinks it could be vital as the team look to surge up the top-flight table.
He said: "The fans have been terrific.
"If you ask them, they'll tell you they're happy if they see players giving 100% for the shirt.
"They don't mind if you give the ball away as long as they see you trying to win it back. They will stick with you.
"Quite a number stayed behind after the Newcastle game and clapped us off.
"They recognised our efforts in that second half to get the game back in our favour. That meant a lot to the players.
"It's a real boost to know the fans are on your side and have your back. They help us.
"They are worth a few points in our favour over the course of the season, 100%."
Ambassador Agbonlahor spoke at the launch event for 'Acorns Day', which is set to take place at the QPR game.
