Villa V Wigan Mini-Preview
With the vast majority of Vital Villans having sunk a few beers at the Holte, coupled with me forgetting to do the preview, it’s the teams, ref and musical interlude this weekend only!
It’s completely as you were as Olof Mellberg recovers in time to retain his place for his very last game at Villa Park wearing the claret & blue.
No other changes really.
Aston Villa: Carson, Mellberg, Bouma, Knight, Laursen, Reo-Coker, Petrov, Barry, Young, Agbonlahor, Carew. Subs: Taylor, Harewood, Berger, Salifou, Routledge.
Wigan: Kirkland, Palacios, Kilbane, Heskey, Koumas, Brown, Valencia, Boyce, Scharner, Bramble, Bent. Subs: Pollitt, Taylor, Sibierski, King, Skoko.
The referee for this weekends match is Mr Rob Styles who hails from Hampshire. Mr Styles last officiated a Villa match during one of the clubs usual hefty defeats at the hands of Manchester United, sending off Nigel Reo-Coker and goalkeeper Scott Carson in the 4-1 thumping last October.
The Holte Meetup
For those who haven’t made the Vital Villa meet up at the Holte Hotel today, a quick promotional video for the Jonathan Fear supporters group, holding it’s second meeting today.
Enjoy the game Villans!
