Take a bow, Ciaran Clark. The defender that I continuously wrote off. The man I never wanted to see in a Villa kit again. The worst Villan around, in my estimation.

I take it all back. I was ever so wrong. After a few matches of defending incredibly well, Clark has added striking to his list of talents that I didn't know he had. Here he is contorting his body to put his head on an Ashley Westwood free kick:

The goal has pulled Villa level with Leicester City, who took a quick 0-1 lead after a shot bounced off of Brad Guzan and the rebound was hammered home. It was a terrible mistake from Guzan, but the quick response by Villa have this feeling very much like a match that is there for the taking.
