Aston Villa face Hull City in the Championship this weekend and the visitors will be looking to get closer to the play-off places with a win here.
Steve Bruce’s men were in a great position to secure automatic promotion. However, consecutive league defeats have damaged their chances.
Villa will be desperate for a win here and this should be a tricky contest. Hull City are fighting for their survival and they will be looking to bounce back from the 3-0 defeat to fellow relegation strugglers Birmingham before the international break.
The last time these two sides met, the match ended in a draw. Neither side can afford to drop points this time around.
The away fans will be delighted to hear that star forward Jonathan Kodjia is back for this game. The 28-year-old has been sidelined since the end of October and his return could not have been better timed.
Steve Bruce has confirmed that Kodjia will be a part of the squad that travels to Hull this weekend.
Here is how the Aston Villa fans reacted to the news on Twitter.
