Wayne Steps Up First Team Challenge
Wayne Routledge will be hoping to impress Martin O'Neill again tonight as the reserves take on Chelsea.
Routledge was in fine form for his reserves debut, when the table topping team slammed Derby County 6-0 earlier in the month.
He will no doubt be hoping he can again get on the scoresheet tonight when they travel to Brentford.
It has also been announced that the remaining four home league games for the reserves this season will be played at Villa Park and not Bescot.
This means as we see the season come to an end, hopefully as Champions of the Barclays Premier Reserve League (south), the Villa Park faithful we entertain Reading, Arsenal, Birmingham and Portsmouth.
The team for tonight is:
Parish, Lund, Baker, D.Bellon, Clark, O'Halloran, Salifou, Albrighton, Delfouneso, Bannan, Berger. Subs: Forrester, Bevan, Earls, Lichaj, Collins.
Nice to see Berger back in action! But looks like no Routledge.
