"If you chase the team above you are more likely to win more games".

Adomah opened the scoring on the hour with his 13th league goal of the season before Hourihane volleyed his side's second.

The Aussie even provided the spark to have Birmingham's Cheikh Ndoye sent off in the game's final minutes after a melee that also involved Villa skipper John Terry.

Grealish's quality was reflected by some desperate tackles by Birmingham in an attempt to keep him in check.

Villa are flying in the promotion race and are chasing a seventh consecutive league win - something they haven't achieved since February 1990.

Birmingham have not scored in their last five visits to Villa Park and sit two points and two places above the relegation zone.

He repeatedly set up promising moves which kept the visitors at full stretch to stay in the game.

Scott Hogan then rattled the Birmingham crossbar on 18 minutes and came close again eight minutes later after being played in by Albert Adomah, though Roberts got in the way of the latter effort.

It was the Corkman's sixth league goal of the season, and will do his chances of playing his way into Martin O'Neill's Ireland plans no harm whatsoever.

Attacker, Hourihane doubled the home side's lead in the 81st minute to put the game beyond the reach of Birmingham City.
