Aston Villa will either succeed or fail altogether, says Australian international Mile Jedinak

Aston Villa’s rise to the promotion places is down to one thing, claims Australia international Mile Jedinak and that is “unity”.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the midfielder declared that the fans and squad think promotion is a realistic target this season, especially after the celebrations following the 4 – 2 win at Hillsborough which had seemingly underlined the belief around Villa Park.

“I’d say togetherness is the most important thing, which is something I’ve seen a lot of in this side.

“You only need to look at the scenes at the final whistle against Sheffield Wednesday.

“There’s a lot of unity here, and not just among the playing squad. The fans are really buying into this team and there’s a real mentality here now that we’re one big family – from players and coaches to staff and supporters.”

Villa are currently five points behind second-placed Cardiff City and 13 adrift of Wolves at the top. However, Jedinak is confident Villa will be in the mix at the end of the season.

“We’ve got to control our own destiny.

“We’ve still got to play a few of the teams in and around us, which gives us a good opportunity.

“Teams are going to take points off each other. Teams are going to drop points. It’s the way it works, especially in this division.”

“We need to make sure we’re on the right side of the results as often as possible and you do that by putting in strong performances.”

Now, their main priority must be to continue this sensational run of victories to ensure they can somehow make a strong case for promotion. If they are able to pull it off, Steve Bruce will succeed at ensuring that one of the most venerable institutions across England return to the promised land of the Premier League.
