Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Steve Bruce's first game in charge

By Harvey Byrne

Steve Bruce took charge of his first match for Aston Villa on Saturday during the 1-1 draw against Wolves – and supporters took to Twitter to state he still had a lot of work to do.

The Villans were held to a stalemate by their Midlands rivals at Villa Park with a penalty from Jonathan Kodjia cancelled out by another penalty from Helder Costa.

The fixture marked Bruce’s first game as the manager of Villa after Roberto di Matteo was sacked during the international break following a 2-0 defeat suffered at the hands of Preston.

Fans took to social media after the match to state that Bruce needed time with much of his squad not good enough for the club.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Villa are now sat in 20th place in the Championship table with just one win coming from their opening 12 fixtures.

They will be keen to turn around their poor form as quickly as possible after pre-season optimism following their relegation from the Premier League last season.

The club broke two Championship incoming transfer records in the summer with the purchases of striker duo Ross McCormack and Jonathan Kodjia with owner Tony Xia looking to bring some success to the Midlands outfit.
