All those nerves, for almost nothing.

While the job isn’t complete, Villa managed to get through half of their play-off semi-final in one piece, and with a one-goal aggregate lead that they can take back to Villa Park for Tuesday’s second-leg of the Championship play-off semi-final against Middlesbrough.

In this latest edition of the Holtecast, Dani Raza and myself, James Rushton, have a quickfire discussion about Villa’s recent victory at the Riverside, spend a few moments discussing the U23’s last game out, before moving to preview the second leg of the semi-final.

The Holtecast is an Aston Villa podcast, and you can listen in below!


Holtecast Predictions:

Team Dani - 3

Team James - 0

Dani got the Preston 1-1 spot on to take a lead back in February, and he got the Sunderland score right. He also got the Ipswich town score spot on.
