Aston Villa fans deliver verdict on Di Matteo after seventh league draw
By Dominic Toner
Aston Villa slipped to their seventh draw of the season against Barnsley on Tuesday – and the club’s supporters have rallied on Twitter for Roberto Di Matteo to be sacked.
Jordan Ayew had given Villa the lead in the second-half but Sam Winnall scored a 90th minute equaliser for the home side.
The result means that the Midlands side have picked up just one win in the first 10 Championship games and are down in 17th in the table.
The Guardian claimed on Monday that Di Matteo had just two games remaining to save his job.
The report detailed that he must win one of the club’s matches against either Barnsley or Preston or face the sack

Villa travel to Preston on Saturday for what could be seen as a must-win game but some fans have already given up hope with Di Matteo.
He was only appointed the Villa boss in the summer and has been tasked with returning the club to the Premier League.
The former Chelsea manager has struggled to get results on the pitch with a talented squad.
Villa fans have taken to Twitter to express their anger over another disappointing result and some feel his time is up at the club.
Sorry but Di matteo has to go cant defend a lead shocking

I'm not going to #avfc until Di Matteo is sacked. Useless manager.
I don't care if I have already paid nearly £6K for my tickets.
