After a history-making season, Villa have took a big first step forward in the postseason by whipping West Bromwich Albion to the sound of a 2-1 victory at Villa Park in the first leg of the play-off semi-final.

James Rushton and Daniel Raza are back with a Holtecast to preview the second leg - and wrap up the first leg.

Discussed in this episode:

  • Villa’s mixed performance
  • Referee ‘bias’
  • What West Brom fans should ‘really’ be unhappy with
  • The similarity between Dark Souls and Aston Villa
  • Dwight Gayle
  • The Jack Grealish ‘dive’
  • Ramadan, fasting and the effect it has on players
  • Second-Leg preview
