Adomah: We don't fear anyone

The Aston Villa attacker says his team is good enough to brush aside any opponent in the English Championship

Although a second place finish will be enough to earn an automatic qualification to the Premier League, Aston Villa are not giving up the chase for the top spot, according to in-form winger Albert Adomah.

Third before Saturday's derby with Birmingham City, the Claret and Blue moved up by a place following a 2-0 win over their city rivals.

The Ghana international, who was on the scoresheet with his 13th league goal of the season, gives an insight into their spirit and target for the rest of the campaign.

"We're on a fantastic run and everyone has got the winning mentality engrained within them now," Adomah said, as reported by his club's official website.

"We don't fear anyone when we go out on that pitch, whether it's bottom-half sides or those amongst us.

"Fulham are one of the chasing pack and we're away from home, but we just have to do our job.

"You look at Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United away. All 1-0 wins and three points – that's all that matters."

Currently, 12 points separate the top two with 15 rounds of matches to go.

"We're in second now and our main aim has always been automatic promotion," Adomah added.

"There are teams chasing us, but we have to look ahead now and try and narrow the gap to Wolves, even though they're a long way ahead.

"Anything is possible in football and we'll give it our best shot. We're more likely to remain in the automatic places with that as our aim."

Adomah is hoping to play in the Premier League once more following a brief spell with Middlesbrough in 2016-2017.
