Aston Villa face a huge task this weekend in the Sky Bet Championship, going up against leaders and champions-elect, Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves have been the Championship’s standout side this season, which is reflected in the league table that they top heading into the run-in.
Steve Bruce’s Villa currently sit third in the Championship table, four points adrift of the top-two heading into this weekend’s round of fixtures.
The Villans have recorded back-to-back victories ahead of tomorrow’s clash, but have been dealt a number of injury blows, with Glenn Whelan one of a number of players set to miss Wolves’ trip to Villa Park.
@AVFCOfficial have moved to confirm that Whelan will be absent with a calf injury, which was picked up in the midweek victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.
