3 things that could seriously de-rail Aston Villa’s PL promotion push



Aston Villa look to be back on track after securing a crucial 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers on Friday night.

It’s now two wins in four games for Dean Smith after goals from Jack Grealish and James Chester secured only Villa’s fifth win of the season, and they are now up to 14th in the table as they look to mount a promotion push.

There’s no doubt that promotion is the aim for Villa this season – after reaching the playoff final last term and with the squad they have on paper, they should be doing much, much better.

Under Dean Smith, they have a manager who will get the best out of Villa’s flair players, but is the playoffs too far-fetched after a dismal start to the season?

Here, we take a look at three things that could de-rail Villa’s promotion push.
