2 losses and a win? Dean Smith’s start - on paper - doesn’t look so hot. But there’s more than meets the eye. Aston Villa, under Smith are actually playing fairly good football.
Now? Villa welcome Bolton to Villa Park hoping to kick-start their season. Phil Parkinson’s men have struggled off-the-pitch, but are fighters on it. It’ll be a tough game, but there’s now better way for Villa to push forward than a positive result tonight.
A big thanks to Bennett Berry for creating all of our match-day images throughout the season. Give him a follow.
