After a sluggish Villa were soundly trounced by Ian Holloway’s QPR in midweek, they’ll be looking to bounce back against Bolton this evening to keep the flickers of a 2nd place finish alive.
It only stays alive if Villa walk out with three points today - bar Cardiff, Fulham and Wolves suffering combustion.
It’s a primetime game, on TV and Villa must step up to the plate and remove the stain of defeat quickly.
Villa. Bolton. Let’s do this.

Aston Villa will be without Jed Steer, Jonathan Kodjia and Chris Samba. Neil Taylor, Alan Hutton and Axel Tuanzebe will also miss out, leaving Villa short of wide defensive options.
Bolton might not be able to field both Jan Kirchoff and Darren Pratley, who are doubts.
Wolves have a full strength side to choose from, with no injuries and Ruben Neves returning from injury.
