JOHN MCGINN SCORED a goal of the season contender for Aston Villa on Saturday, slamming in a stunning volley against Sheffield Wednesday.

The goal ultimately proved in vain, as his side succumbed to a disappointing 2-1 defeat at Villa Park.

Marco Matias gave the visitors a 1-0 lead, before 23-year-old Scottish midfielder McGinn levelled with a sublime effort, sending a perfectly-executed volley in off the underside of Cameron Dawson’s crossbar.
