A number of Aston Villa supporters have thrown their weight behind striker Scott Hogan after bagging a goal in their pre-season victory on Sunday. They hope the 27-year-old can make an impact in the Premier League next season after barely playing his part in their promotion-winning campaign.

Hogan couldn’t buy a place in the match day squad under Steve Bruce and wasn’t even able to gain a start under his former Brentford boss Dean Smith, coming off the bench just six times for a total of 68 minutes before being shipped out on loan. His temporary switch to Sheffield United culminated in winning automatic promotion to the Premier League where he scored twice in eight appearances.

The striker joined Villa Park from Brentford in a £12m deal on deadline day in January 2017 and has only made 61 appearances in the claret and blue, scoring ten goals. Despite his bit-part role at the club, fans are desperately hoping Hogan can make an impact for them next season in the Premier League with one fan calling for him to prove the doubters wrong.

Other supporters replied to his tweet saying they had faith in his ability with one member of the Villa fanbase stating his hard work and dedication will pay off – this was reinforced by another supporter who said that his attitude had been commendable during his time at the club. Villa could also save some money if Hogan can show he’s a decent striker according to a further fan.

Here’s the best selection of tweets from some of the Villa faithful:
