After conceding seven goals to Norwich City last weekend, Reading would have been hoping for an easier journey when they face Aston Villa over the weekend.
They would have been boosted by Jonathan Kodjia’s injury doubt.
However, Aston Villa’s official Twitter account confirmed that Jonathan Kodjia had returned to training and is available for selection this weekend.
The impressive Ivorian international has eight goals in his last eight games, taking his tally for the season to 19 goals in the Sky Bet Championship.
Reading, off the back of a 7-1 thrashing at the hands of Norwich, would have been hoping that Kodjia didn’t quite make the squad but he has been passed fit and could well play against a Royals defence which is bound to be lacking in confidence.
Aston Villa fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on this massive injury boost.
