The Villa reserves carried on their charge for the title with a 2-0 win over Portsmouth at Villa Park last night.

Ciaran Clark and Nathan Delfouneso both scored in the second half against a 10 man Pompey after Wilson was red carded in the 30th minute.

Villa now have 3 games to get just 2 points to win the league.

Salifou played the full 90 mins and former Spurs winger Wayne Routledge 75 mins as he looks to push for a first team place.

Villa: Taylor, Lund, Lowry, Osbourne, Clark, Baker, Salifou, Routledge, Williams, Delfouneso, Bannan. Subs: Forrester (replaced Routledge 75), Bevan, Albrighton (replaced Osbourne 81), Mikaelsson (replaced Delfouneso 86), Lichaj.
