A new month, a new Villa? That could mean a lot, especially within the context of Steve Bruce's future at Aston Villa.
If the current boss loses his next two games in charge, the word on the street is that he'll be dismissed. We'll have to see if that's true.
Next up, Villa face Preston North End. While they are bottom of the table, they've not left teams unscathed. Villa will have to play well to get the job done, and keep promotion hopes alive.
