Aussie makes spectacular return for Villa U-23s

Aussie defender Jordan Lyden has made an incredible return from a lengthy injury layoff for Aston Villa’s under-23 team against Wolves in the Premier League 2 competition.

After missing almost the entire season with a knee problem, Lyden was on the bench at Molineux for Villa and came on with his side trailing 1-0 at the hour mark. 

And the Perth-born 21-year-old masterminded a stunning comeback, scoring a superb individual equaliser before winning the penalty that allowed the visitors to triumph 2-1.
