Ian Taylor provides his assessment after Aston Villa win against Norwich
By Amir Mir
Ian Taylor has hailed Aston Villa striker Jonathan Kodjia after his goals helped secure a 2-0 win over Norwich on Saturday afternoon.
Steve Bruce’s side scored goals on either side of the break to continue their magnificent winning run in the league.
They have now won five out of their last five matches, including four wins on the bounce at home where they have also kept four clean sheets.
This comes after a torrid run in January and February where they lost five matches on the bounce which saw Bruce come under-fire from the supporters.
Nonetheless, after the win against managerless Norwich, Holte End favourite Taylor delivered his assessment on how the match went.

“A great win,” Taylor posted on his personal Twitter account. “Two great Jonathan Kodjia goals. The run goes on.”

Ivory Coast international Kodjia has now scored 17 goals for the club following his big money move from Bristol City in the summer.
In what has been a poor campaign for the Midlands outfit, Kodjia has been one of the very few bright sparks.
Kodjia is on course to score 20 goals in a season for Villa, a feat which has not been achieved by a player in a claret and blue shirt since Dwight Yorke in the late 1990’s.
There are seven matches of the Championship season remaining, including two within the next week.
Villa will host Ian Holloway’s QPR on Tuesday night befoe they travel to Burton Albion for a tricky away fixture next Saturday.
