Aston Villa's Conor Hourihane celebrates with Robert Snodgrass and Ahmed Elmohamady after scoring the second goal against Birmingham City.

Aston Villa have risen to second in the Championship table thanks to a 2-0 derby win over Birmingham City on Sunday afternoon.

The strike, his 13th league goal of the season, also smashed his record of 12 achieved in 2013-14 while on the books of Middlesbrough.

The 57-year-old Villa manager had until Saturday been on compassionate leave following the death of his father last Tuesday, the pain of that experience compounded by fears for his mother, who has herself been battling serious illness.

Conor Hourihane made sure the points would be staying with the Villa Park outfit when he doubled their lead with just ten minutes left to play.

Adomah may have turned the game in Villa's favour but the talented Jack Grealish took the individual honours.

The Blues had a warning in the 41st minute, when Grealish strayed to the left, allowing Adomah to move inside, and the former's pass set up the latter for a 20-yard shot that zipped wide.

Birmingham finished the match with ten men after Cheikh Ndoye was shown a second yellow card, however, the hosts had already done more than enough for the victory.
