The Aston Villa fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to their club’s injury update on Alan Hutton, as the club confirmed Hutton had returned to full training for the first time since coming off injured in their 4-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday.
The Villains propping our ar up are buzzing with the Scottish defender’s return as the club look to fight against the odds for an automatic promotion spot come the end of the season. The last two results have not been good for Villa as they lost to lesser fancied QPR and Bolton, handing the initiative to Cardiff and Fulham in the final couple of months in the season.

Whilst an automatic promotion spot seems unrealistic for the Villa Park faithful, the fans will be optimistic that they can brave the playoffs to gain promotion. The Championship is looking tight at the top, as it dies at this stage every season, with Wolves, Cardiff, Villa and Fulham all battling it out as they look to make returns to England’s top flight. The race for Premier League football is certainly hotting up and those getting behind Villa will be thankful to see Scottish ace, Hutton back in training and back in the lineup.
Here’s what our resident Villains make of Hutton’s return:
Just in time!! Never thought I’d say that

This guy is crucial for our run in now. Been one of our hardest working players and for me is up there in the top 3 5 players of the season. Could make our promotion push a realistic one!

absolutely. Gets so much stick but one of steadiest players in our team for some years now

Totally agree, one of our most hard working players. We have missed him, great to have him back
