Aston Villa team news: Kevin MacDonald takes interim control

Aston Villa will be preparing for their first match without Steve Bruce at the helm when they travel to London to face Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

The Villans decided to part company with their manager after a poor run of form that has seen them sit in the middle of the Championship table.

Despite their position, they have only managed to win one game in their last ten, however, Millwall have not enjoyed themselves either this season.

Kevin MacDonald will take the reigns until a new manager is confirmed and according to the club’s official website, he could be without a couple of key players for the game.

James Chester will be unavailable as he serves the one-match suspension handed to him following the red card he picked up in the previous match against Preston North End.

Mile Jedinak and Keinan Davis both remain doubts for the Villans as both look to continue to recover from injuries.

The Verdict:

Aston Villa will be looking for a fresh start and will want to see an immediate improvement moving forward.

The game against Millwall could be an ideal opportunity as the Londoners have struggled, although they did fight back against Nottingham Forest in their last outing to secure a late draw.

Chester will be a big blow for the Villans as they already had defensive issues going into the game and with Jedinak possibly out, they could have further problems at the back.
