Aston Villa are at Villa Park for the game against 19th placed Reading for today’s Championship game.
This will be a 7.45pm kick-off as we look to secure all three points with a win and get back to winning ways as we gun for promotion following the draw against Hull City in our last game.
If results elsewhere today go our way hopes for a second place finish and automatic promotion will be bolstered with Cardiff dropping points yesterday evening, but it’s looking like the Play Offs for now.
The focus is purely on returning to winning ways though as we look to end the season in good form and hopefully ensure we get the perceived easier route through the Play Offs as we eye a trip to Wembley Stadium.
Steve Bruce has made five changes from the Hull affair.

So the big question is, has Steve Bruce called this one right after our last draw? With five changes made, are they the right ones?
Aston Villa v Reading
Fulham v Leeds United
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Hull City
