Villa boss McLeish full of praise for goal scorer Weimann

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish was full of praise for Andreas Weimann after his wonder goal in their 1-1 draw with Stoke City.

Austria Under-21 international Weimann curled a 20-yard shot past Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic to give Villa a first-half lead in only his second senior start.

McLeish said: "Goals talk and it will be hard for me to leave Weimann out.

"It was a fantastic strike. We needed a bit of inspiration at that time and it was inspirational.

"It came out of nothing and was a wonderful goal from a great young prospect. He is a good finisher and we've seen it again with that goal."
