Albert Adomah: We have to try and chase Wolves and put pressure on them

Published on: 12 February 2018

Aston Villa winger Albert Adomah says they have to put pressure on Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers after derby win.

Adomah scored his 13th goal of the season as Villa defeated rivals Birmingham City 2-0 on Saturday.

The Victory saw Steve Bruce’s team climb into the automatic promotion places for the first time since they were relegated from the Premier League in 2016.

Adomah believes Wolves should be their next target.

''We have to try and chase Wolves and put pressure on them,'' he said. ''We did it with Derby – though I know we are only one point ahead of them.

''We are still quite a distance from Wolves but anything is possible. Our aim is to catch them. If we keep that aim then we are more likely to stay in the automatic promotion spots.

''If you chase the team above you are more likely to win more games. We don’t want to look below. We have to keep looking above. Automatic promotion is our aim.''
