Aston Villa boss Dean Smith got off to the perfect start to his life as manager of his boyhood club, with a hard fought 1-0 win over Swansea City.
A goal from Tammy Abraham proved to be enough for Smith to pick up his first points as Aston Villa manager and he will be keen to earn another three points this week as his side travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.
The win moved Villa up to 13th in the Championship table, but more importantly, they are just three points adrift of Norwich, who currently occupy a play-off position.
Many Villa fans will feel that if Smith can get this side firing, then Aston Villa will certainly be a force to be reckoned with for the rest of the season as they are already in the play-off chasing pack.
But could Smith do with some defensive reinforcements to add depth to his squad?
We look at the best CB options that would be available on a free transfer.
