Match Day: Wigan vs. Aston Villa

It’s off to the DW Stadium today as Aston Villa visit Wigan and look to start turning draws into wins. As everyone’s been talking about, it’s one of those weekends where Villa could make up some ground and finish the day seventh if everything turns out right. That, of course, includes getting all three points.

Match Day: Aston Villa vs. Stoke City

Rather quiet week following the Robbery at the Hawthorns as Dean Smith and the boys prepared to play without Jack Grealish for the first time. After he left the Baggies clash, I thought Villa lost their way a little in closing out that game. But that might have had as much to do with Kodjia’s poor showing. This time it will be a full 90 without the young man who, to my mind, is the glue in the side. So John McGinn will get a chance to shine even more brightly than he usually does.
