It was already a special goal for Jack Grealish, one he'd cherish forever. The first time he scored in front of the Holte End.

Grealish's goal that extended Aston Villa's lead to 3-0 over Rotherham United has been named Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Week for Matchday 2.

It's hard to call it a strike, as it rolled into an empty net at a rather low velocity, but the beauty of the goal doesn't lie in the how quickly the ball was moving, but rather the dazzling display that left the Rotherham defenders in a heap just before Grealish capped off the victory.

Additionally, Rudy Gestede was named in the English Football League Team of the Week. Not only did Gestede have the best performance of a central striker in the Championship, but also League One and League Two.

His two goals helped Villa to victory.
