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.

That, of course, includes getting all three points.

FA Cup: Aston Villa vs. Swansea City

It’s been another difficult week, and Villa “have limped over the line” into the new year, as Dean Smith put it. But his demeanor in the Swansea pre-game presser seemed good. As one might expect, he’s looking to freshen up the side, and has done. O’Hare has been called up, Kalinic makes his debut, Taylor comes back, and Hogan will get a go.
