John McGinn scores for Aston Villa

Aston Villa finally made their second-half dominance count to end Derby County’s six-game unbeaten run in the Championship.

Scotland midfielder John McGinn nodded in Villa’s opener from Yannick Bolasie’s left-wing cross and then turned provider for Tammy Abraham to double the lead.

Conor Hourihane’s superb free-kick wrapped up Villa’s first away win since their opening game of the season.

Villa were deserved winners, creating several good chances but failing to find the net until they scored three times in 11 minutes late on.

McGinn, Abraham and Jonathan Kodjia had all been guilty of wasting opportunities at Pride Park as Derby struggled to contain their visitors, and the hosts could not hold out.
