Match Thread: Wolves V Aston Villa (Home, 14/10/2017)

Wolves take on local rivals Aston Villa in a game that could see Wolves go top of the Championship. Cardiff City lost to Villa's fierce rivals Birmingham City last night 1-0 to give Wolves a chance.

Match facts

  • Steve Bruce's first game in charge of Villa was against Wolves a year ago - a 1-1 draw in a game of two penalties when Helder Costa cancelled out Jonathan Kodja's 15th-minute strike.
  • Wolves then won the return at Molineux in January, when Joe Mason got the only goal, once again in the 15th minute. It was their first home win against Villa since May 1978.
  • This is the 107th league meeting between Wolves and Aston Villa but only the third time the two old rivals, both of them Football League founder members in 1888, have met in the second tier.
  • Leo Bonatini, who has four goals and four assists to his name this season, is the only Championship player this season to have both scored and assisted four or more.
  • Steve Bruce, who was very close to getting the Wolves job in 2012, has taken just one point from his most recent five league visits. His last victory at Molineux was in April 2007, when his Birmingham City side won 3-2.
  • You have to go back to April 1963 for the last time Wolves got back to back wins over the Villa. A 3-1 home win on the 15th April was followed by a 2-0 away win the next day. Since then Wolves have won only five (2 at home) out of 37 matches.

Us 'foreigners' have to do this one on the player. Wish we were there but playing really positively; hope they don't get us on the counter.

Good first half, cracking atmosphere. Think we have edged it but need to do better in front of goal.

Playing well and have had the best chance with a superb shot from Neves. Cav getting some rough treatment particularly from
Hutton. Need to get more players in the box when we’re in possession, hence Bonatini on for Costa

Really need to sign Jota permanently in January if we can. I'm nervous someone else will come in for him.
