Aston Villa chief executive believes it is “no coincidence” that Steve Bruce’s unchanged starting XI secured a win over Burton Albion on Tuesday evening.
The Claret and Blues improving form continued during their midweek clash as they hammered the Brewers 4-0 away at the Pirelli Stadium.
Goals courtesy of youngster Keinan Davis, Albert Adomah, summer signing Robert Snodgrass and Tottenham Hotspur loanee Josh Onomah allowed Steve Bruce’s side to collect another three points putting them on a total 16 so far.
Tuesday’s result marks their third successive victory in the Championship and the club’s CEO Keith Wyness believes that Steve Bruce is building a stable squad.
“No coincidence that same starting XI for 3 games and stability breeds wins, building something,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account after the game.

Their win over Burton Albion on Tuesday was the first time they had achieved back-to-back away victories in the competition since September 2014, which they sealed in the first-half after they went 3-0 up and finished off with Onomah’s goal in the 71st minute.
The Midland side are now unbeaten in seven league games which has helped them climb to eighth position in the table and means they are in reaching distance of the play-off places.
Next, Steve Bruce will prepare his side to their clash on Saturday as they host Northern side Bolton at Villa Park.
