Aston Villa conceded a late goal as they drew 1-1 against Huddersfield on Tuesday – and supporters reacted with weary resignation on Twitter.
The Villains went ahead in the game through an early Ross McCormack strike and were just minutes away from victory when Huddersfield struck back to end Villa’s hopes of a second consecutive win.
Michael Hefele chased down a long ball forward and as Villa goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini came out to clear, he smashed the ball against Hefele and watched on as the ball bounced into his empty net to level the score.

The result leaves Roberto Di Matteo’s side in 11th place in the Championship having earn’t just three points from four games in England’s second tier.
The Birmingham outfit were relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing 20th, earning just 17 points from 38 matches.
Fans will be hoping that new owner Dr Tony Xia alongside Di Matteo can inspire the clarent and blue side to rediscover Premiership form and lead a charge up the table this season.
