Albert Adomah on target for Aston Villa in English Championship

Albert Adomah on target for Aston Villa in English Championship

Albert Adomah has set his sights on beating Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers after Sunday's derby win over Birmingham City.

Adomah may have turned the game in Villa's favour but his team-mate Jack Grealish was the driving force for the hosts.

Villa went on to seal the win nine minutes from time when Conor Hourihane pounced on a poor clearance to slam a ferocious strike up over Stockdale and into the net from 20 yards. His danger was reflected by some desperate tackles by Birmingham in an attempt to keep him in check.

Jedinak was the only change for Villa, who were searching for their seventh-straight league win - what would be their best streak in 28 years.

On Saturday, she sat down for almost three hours of meetings and lunch at the Blue House, South Korea's presidential complex. The spokesman said Mr Moon also called for a quick resumption of dialogue between the United States and North Korea .

Birmingham have not scored in their last five visits to Villa Park and sit two points and two places above the relegation zone.

With Villa already 1-0 up heading into the closing stages against Birmingham on Sunday afternoon, the 26-year-old composed himself on the edge of the area before unleashing a brilliantly-placed dipping half-volley that gave Birmingham goalkeeper David Stockdale absolutely no chance of keeping out.

The Ghanaian shot his side into the lead in the 15 minutes after the break.

John Terry's slip allowed a ball played down the channel by Jacques Maghoma to reach Sam Gallagher, who went on to strike an effort against the post before blazing the rebound over.
