Match Thread: Aston Villa vs Wolves
By Wolves

Local Derby

Nuno Espirito Santo faces the challenge of motivating his team for their third match in eight days following the restart of the season, although as this is the 51st games of Wolves season they may already be used to it!!

In the only Premier League game taking place today Wolves make the short trip to Midlands rivals Aston Villa for an important game for both teams. The FA Cup Quarter Final has limited the availability of teams to play PL games this weekend, so Wolves have the chance to move above Man United, whilst Villa seek to climb out of the bottom three in the League. Wolves fans will be hoping that the Adama and Raul partnership will continue to be as productive as in the last two games, especially against former Wolves centre back Kortney Hause!!

The game is the early kick-off match at 12:30pm and will be screened on BT Sport 1. Those of us without that channel will have to seek out other options.

Our referee will be Craig Pawson, who also controlled the Spurs v Man Utd game on Monday

This board will endeavour to provide regular updates on the progress of the game for the benefit of those unable to watch it, and board members are encouraged to post their own observations
