Last night, not just one but two gorgeous volleys were seen in the Championship to help Aston Villa and Sheffield United claim three points.
Jack Grealish’s strike from 20 yards and only goal of the game came in the 85th minute against Cardiff City, who lose second place after Fulham won their game against Reading. Evans’ came after just two minutes on the clock from just a little further out.

The Blades are now 9th and now three points off the top six with four games left to play, and their manager Chris Wilder has challenged his players to push on and grab a spot.
“Credit to our players,” Wilder told Gazette Live. “They’ve got themselves in a position this season where they have something to play for.
Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce told BBC WM:
“Near half-time, our goalkeeper pulled off a couple of remarkable saves. Cardiff will always ask you that question and Neil’s been doing it for years.
“That bit of quality could win any game. It was a wonderful strike and we’re pleased it was our night.”
They stay 4th but are five points off Fulham who swapped places with the Bluebirds.
