So here we are, with a winning streak. Aston Villa have actually won three games in a row. A 3-0 win over Barnsley was followed by a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest with a 4-0 victory coming against Burton Albion in the week.
And now, with glory on the cards - Villa come up against the ‘worst’ team in the Championship - Bolton Wanderers. To be fair, the Trotters have been crippled by off-the-field issues, and a transfer ban along with ownership problems have really done them no favours.
That being said, Villa cannot afford to be careless or patronising with their treatment of Bolton. It’s these games that define a season, because it’s these games where you go in, with too much confidence, only to be crushed by silly mistakes. Make no mistake - Villa need to concentrate for 90 minutes and get the job done here. A lack of professionalism in this game will highlight some major issues, once more.
Here’s how you can watch.
