Aston Villa get back into action following the international break, with the small matter of the Second City derby against Birmingham City next up for Dean Smith’s men on Sunday lunchtime.
Smith will be encouraged that he now has a fully fit Yannick Bolasie available to him, as the Everton loanee has only been fit enough for loan appearances so far this season.
So how important could Bolasie be for Villa, now he has proved his match fitness?
He could be key to Villa getting themselves into the race for the play-offs.
Dean Smith has some great options out wide, but I’d argue that Bolasie is the best of the bunch.
It’s a crucial period now in the Championship season, so having Bolasie firing will give everyone at Villa Park a boost.
He could be vital to them moving up the table and hitting form to move into a play-off place.
Yannick Bolasie has been a substitute all season since his loan move from Everton and is yet to start.
But proving his fitness could be ideal for Dean Smith who could look to start the loanee this weekend in the second city derby.
If he can show his form that made him an asset in the Premier League he’ll rip the league up.
We’ve seen signs of what he can do and he should be a pivotal player in the coming months.
