Villas quest for our first trophy since 1996 continues tonight.
Our opposition. Bolton wanderers, are giving a run out to their best player from last season. Stuart Holden. But they are not in the best form. Losing their last four games. But that form can be quite misleading as three of those defeats were to liverpool, united and man city. Still i am sure there confidence will be low. Villa need to capitalise on this.
So what team will we put out. I wouldnt be surprised if we put out a strongish team as it could be our best chance of silverware.
With the injuries picked up in the weekends game it could be a good chance to give them players who havent been playing some match time. Herd deserves a game after his motm performance earlier in the season. I would imagine Ireland will get a start too however i do feel he ia running out of chances slowly. Also i can see maybe given being given a rest and guzan getting his usual cup run. The other big chance i believe we could see is the fonz coming in for bent.
My prediction for the game is
Aston Villa 2 - 0 Bolton Wanderers
One day ill get it right
