Aston Villa take on Wolves on Saturday 15th October, 2016, with kickoff at 17:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
There are some big sides in the Championship this year, and some teams arguably good enough to win a few minor top leagues around Europe, but so far Villa haven’t really looked like they are one of the giants of the second tier. Sacking Roberto Di Matteo and replacing him with Steve Bruce is clever though, and if they win here against Wolves there is a chance the team could gain momentum and still make it a good year.
As for Wolves, they are a great example of how the size of a club is no guarantee of success, and a warning for Villa et al.
