At a glance

Aston Villa return home for the first of back-to-back Sky Bet Championship matches at Villa Park this weekend, with Hull City the visitors to B6.

The Tigers, who we beat 3-1 on the opening day of the season, are currently on the best winning streak in the division – having triumphed six times in a row.

Despite defeat at Wigan last weekend the gap to the top six remains at just five points, with the luxury of three home matches coming up in as many weeks.


Team news

Jonathan Kodjia is back and fit to face Hull City on Saturday.

The Ivorian missed last weekend's trip to Wigan Athletic because of a knock, but is in line to feature this time around.

He is the only confirmed injury comeback, with Mile Jedinak having just an outside chance of making the matchday squad.

Henri Lansbury, Jack Grealish and Axel Tuanzebe remain absent.

Kortney Hause is likely to make the 18 for the first time at Villa Park.

The Boss

Dean Smith

"Nigel Adkins has done very well after a tough start to the season. He's got them playing in a manner that he wants – they're dangerous.

"They've got players who can create and score, as well as a solid base behind that.

"We know it's going to be tough – they've won 3-0 and 6-0 of late. They're the in-form team.

"But we always have the belief in the quality of our squad. Combined with the hurt we suffered last week, I'm hoping we can do what's required to win the game."
