The football pundit has shed lights on why the Ghanaian is having a run of his life in the Championship

Championship pundit Keith Andrews has revealed that Albert Adomah is having a wonderful spell at Aston Villa due to the role given to him by manager Steve Bruce.

The 29-year-old has bagged five goals in three games to take his season’s tally to 11, as the Villans push for a Premier League qualification next season.

His performance has earned him nomination into the PFA Fans' award for the month of November.

“He gives them a nice balance. When the ball is on the right-hand side, he is coming in to make that second striker alongside Davis," Andrew told Sky Sports.

“He’s getting into the areas of the pitch where you’re going to score goals. Too often wingers stay wide, chalk on their boots, they need to get into the danger areas.

“He’s at that age now, 29, where he’s got that little bit of composure, a little bit of luck at times, but he’s got the composure, left foot, right foot, to slot past the keeper,” he added.

Aston Villa manager Bruce has also challenged Adomah to at least reach the 20-goal mark this season since he's only nine goals away.

“He’s had a wonderful return, as I’ve said now for the past few weeks,” Bruce said.

“At the start, because of the form of Andre Green, he wasn’t in the team, so it just shows you. He’s worked hard and he’s got his reward.

“Playing on the left he looks so comfortable coming in on his right foot and running across the line. He’s a threat and that’s 11 goals he’s got which is a wonderful return.

“Long may it continue and there’s no reason now why he can’t set his sights to go and get another 10 at this part of the season,” he added.

Adomah has been out of Ghana squad since the departure of Avram Grant but reports in the local media suggest that Kwesi Appiah will visit him during the Christmas holidays in UK.
