Aston Villa’s January continues with a trip up north to Wigan Athletic, and the Villans will be hoping for a better return than their last match - in which Swansea dumped the Villa out of the FA Cup in the Third Round with a 3-0 battering of AVFC at Villa Park.
They didn’t fare much better in the league either - after being reduced to scraping a point against Queens Park Rangers at home.
But, bygones are bygones and Villa will hopefully be looking forward to causing some damage and getting back on track - that must begin today with a positive showing against Wigan Athletic.
