Aston Villa vs. Wigan Athletic: Lineups And Open Match Thread

Kirsten can't figure out where these lineups go in the table because she hasn't had coffee, but here you are, lineups, a bit late but eh:

Aston Villa Starting XI: Given, Hutton, Dunne, Collins, Warnock, Petrov, Ireland, Bannan, Delph, Agbonlahor, Bent

Aston Villa Bench: Guzan, N'Zogbia, Albrighton, Heskey, Clark, Weimann, Herd.

Wigan Athletic Starting XI: Al Habsi, Stam, Caldwell, Figueroa, Van Aanholt, Moses, McCarthy, Boyce, Watson, Diame, Di Santo.

Wigan Bench: Kirkland, Maloney, Gomez, McArthur, Sammon, Jones, Lopez.

Well hmmm. Apparently if you mouth off to Alex McLeish and tell him that you want to play on the right, you get benched against your former team. Wonder if Charles N'Zogbia got fined, as well?

Also I'm rather surprised Emile Heskey isn't starting.
