Wednesday media watch [08.05.13 AM]: Guzan in awards joy

Birmingham Mail: Brad Guzan was named supporters' player and players' player of the season last night as Villa toasted their top stopper - and Wigan's wobble in the Premier League survival race. Andi Weimann picked up the fans' young player accolade, while Christian Benteke was the players' young player with Matt Lowton's wonder volley against Stoke clinching the goal of the season gong.

Birmingham Mail: Villa fans are planning to make the final match of the season at Wigan 'Stiliyan Petrov day' to pay tribute to their courageous captain. Supporters lucky enough to get one of the 3,000 tickets for the limited allocation trip to the DW Stadium on May 19 are being encouraged to join in with the Petrov theme.

Birmingham Mail: Peter Withe would love Christian Benteke to end his long-standing 20 league goals record - providing the Villa striker strives to beat it again next season. Benteke has the final two games at home to Chelsea on Saturday and at Wigan on the final day eight days later to add two more to his 18-goal debut season tally.

Daily Express: Former Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore is tipping Christian Benteke to become one of the stars of European football. Benteke is on the verge of becoming the first Villa player to score 20 league goals in a season since Peter Withe 32 years ago.

Best Of The Rest
