Aston Villa vs Reading: Lineups, live stream info and how to follow online

Find out how to tune in as Aston Villa take on Reading

What more is there to say? Aston Villa are going off the boil, and while the playoffs are a sure bet, it’s a shame to see Bruce’s gung-ho Lions on the wind down, but hey - maybe they need a bit of rest before the extremity of the playoffs arrive?

Today’s opponents are Reading, enjoying a slight bounce of sorts under new manager Paul Clement, we spoke to The Tilehurst End to preview the game, and you can also find another preview on this week’s Holtecast.

As it is not a televised tie - this match will BE LIVE STREAMED on AVTV, for an international audience. For future reference on AVTV, here’s all you need to know compiled by Phil Vogel. Don’t forget to get involved in the comments section below!
