Steve Bruce has named an unchanged starting XI for the fourth match running as we prepare to take on Bolton Wanderers at 3pm.
The back five of Sam Johnstone, Ahmed Elmohamady, James Chester, John Terry and Neil Taylor, who have conceded just two goals in the last five Championship matches, are tasked with keeping the opposition out once again today.
Conor Hourihane, Glenn Whelan, Albert Adomah and Robert Snodgrass continue in midfield after some sumptuous football against Burton Albion in midweek, while Keinan Davis and Jonathan Kodjia lead the line.
The substitutes bench is also unchanged from the Burton victory.
ASTON VILLA: Johnstone; Elmohamady, Terry, Chester, Taylor; Snodgrass, Whelan, Hourihane, Adomah; Davis, Kodjia. Subs: Steer, Samba, Hogan, Onomah, Bjarnason, Hutton, O'Hare.
