Aston Villa

Potential double injury boost for Aston Villa ahead of must-win game

Aston Villa fans here in the Tavern are hoping that their side can secure a massive three points later on today, with automatic promotion still a possibility. 

The Villains have been in fine form of late as they’re currently on a three-game winning streak and will look to extend this later on today, with fellow promotion hopefuls Derby County travelling to Villa Park. And, many of our local residents received some brilliant news prior to kick-off, as according to BBC Sport’s pre-match team news, John Terry and Jonathan Kodjia could return.

John Terry has been the standout performer for Aston Villa so far this season and he will play a vital part in their promotion push, as his experience and quality at the heart of the defence could take them to the Premier League. Although, the veteran has been missing in their last three Championship fixtures but could return to proceedings later on today.

Similarly, Jonathan Kodjia played a huge part towards the start of the current campaign and will lead the line from here on in, as he could also return against the Rams later on today after missing their last game.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

John Terry’s possible return will be huge for the Villains as they come up against a tough Derby County side, with many of our local residents believing that the Englishman can keep the Rams at bay. Although, Jonathan Kodjia will be as big a boost if he can manage to make the squad, as his goalscoring threat will be vital from here on in until the end of the season.

Aston Villa fans… Thoughts on the news? Let us know down below!!!
