Andi Weimann happy to be amongst goals for Aston Villa

Andi Weimann is happy to be amongst the goals again for Aston Villa.

The Austrian international, 22, netted vital strikes against Liverpool and West Brom last month as Villa picked up four points lifting them up to 10th in the Premier League.

"It's been a long wait but I have scored two goals in three games now so I feel great," he told the club's official website.

"It's given me a boost now. I am positive heading into the rest of the season. They were two important goals too, which is the big thing.

"To score against a team vying for the title is good and to score in the derby too is fantastic. I want to keep going. I feel I can.

"It's like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders when you score goals as a forward.

"I always felt I was contributing but just not scoring. But, of course, as a forward you're desperate to score. That's what you live for.

"Your confidence is bound to dip a bit if you go for a spell without a goal. But once you do hit the net, you get a burst of belief.

"I now feel I can go and score more between now and the end of the season."
