Steve Bruce and Lewis Grabban villainous return to Sunderland
Sunderland remain rooted to the bottom of the table after a former player and manager took 3 points.
Steve Bruce's Aston Villa beat the Black Cats 3-nil at the Stadium of Light with former loan star Lewis Grabban netting the first.
James Chester headed in the second to double the visitor's lead on the stroke of half time.
The final nail in the coffin came when a deflected Conor Hourihane strike made it 3-0 after 60m minutes.
Tyias Browning and John O'Shea both left the field injured adding to Chris Coleman's injury woes.
Up next it's back to London and a game against QPR on Saturday.
The disgruntled Sunderland fans started to make their own entertainment towards the end of the match using their mobile torches to create a Stadium of "Lights".
After the match former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce took no delight from piling more pressure on the club saying "There has to change at the top, and the sooner the better I would have thought for everybody's sake".
