Aston Villa kept the heat on their promotion rivals thanks to a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Saturday evening.

The away side put in an impressive display and were unlucky not to win by a bigger margin. John Terry hit the bar with a thumping header, Jack Grealish curled a fine shot just wide of the post, and Robert Snodgrass forced an impressive save out of Forest’s goalkeeper.

The winner was scored by Scott Hogan in the 18th minute when he stooped to nod in a fine cross from Snodgrass.

This was an important three points for Villa as Cardiff and Derby had won their games in the afternoon. This means that they are still just five points below Derby in second. However, they now find themselves four points above Leeds in seventh place as they lost to Ipswich.

Ross McCormack to fly back to UK for Villa talks .
Ross McCormack is set to fly back to the UK tomorrow and is expected to hold talks with Villa on a possible return. The Scot was sent on loan to Australian A-League side Melbourne City after a high profile bust-up with Villa boss Steve Bruce.

Off to… https://t.co/zuSHf66Coo (@SimonPeach) McCormack was signed last summer for £12 million from Fulham. The Scot never really got going in a Villa shirt and was apparently very unfit. Steve Bruce dropped him from the squad in January for continually missing training. The 31 year old was then sent out on loan to Nottingham Forest, where he notched one goal against Norwich City. McCormack played two games in the Carabao Cup early in the season for Villa, before being sent out to Australia. The Scot rediscovered his eye for goal down under, scoring 14 goals in 16 appearances for Melbourne City. The Manchester City affiliate club are expecting an uphill battle to keep McCormack at the club, and expect him to make his return to Aston Villa.
