Nicklas Helenius has continued his impressive beginning to life at Aston Villa by scoring another goal.

The Danish striker, who joined Villa from Aalborg, added to his goal on debut in a preseason friendly draw with SV Rodinghausen in the week by netting two minutes after coming on as a half-time sub in the eventual 1-1 draw with 2.Bundesliga side VfL Bochum.

Helenius nodded home a cross from fellow summer signing Leandro Bacuna in the 47th minute before Villa conceded to Yusuke Tasaka late in the game.
