  • Watkins heads past Karl Darlow

Aston Villa cruised to a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League last night. Right now they have a little gap between them and Fulham but I would say Fulham and West Brom are in much better shape than Newcastle.

"I thought we were good especially in the first half", Smith told Sky Sports.

Watkins had another effort correctly ruled out for marginal offside before Traore made it 2-0 in the 42nd, beating Darlow with a fine first-time shot off the underside of the bar thanks to a superb assist by Jack Grealish.

Victory at Villa Park saw the Birmingham club move up to eighth place in the table. Aston Villa will now lock horns with Burnley in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Newcastle never looked like getting anything after falling behind and were fortunate not to concede more goals but Bruce was hopeful their fortunes would change after suffering a fourth straight league defeat since the turn of the year.

"We have had three tough away games and we only got one point, there were some debatable decisions in the Manchester games but today we did well", said Smith after Saturday's success.

After replacing Diego Costa on the hour mark, "the Stallion" was on target as Guus Hiddink's Blues silenced Steve McClaren's side 5-1 at Stamford Bridge in that encounter.

"Unfortunately we've gifted them a goal and after that it was hard", Bruce said. But there were great parts that I liked. Certainly the addition of Allan Saint-Maximin and Ryan Fraser.

"I've seen enough to be encouraged".

Despite this latest defeat, Bruce said he'd seen enough to be "encouraged". Yes, we have to accept defeat but there was enough of it to work.
