Aston Villa fans want Adomah to face Middlesbrough

Aston Villa will face Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday in the first leg of their Championship playoff semi-final.

Steve Bruce’s side will be looking to secure a positive result away to Boro before the two teams meet at Villa Park in the second leg on May 15.

There is simply no downplaying the importance of the match, and the winner will take on either Fulham or Derby County in the final of the Championship playoffs.

The Villa supporters have been discussing their team selection for the clash at the Riverside, and a number have called on Bruce to select Albert Adomah in an attacking role.

Bruce has a number of options in the final third of the field, but the bulk of the Villa fans believe that Adomah, who has faced criticism this season, should be in the XI this weekend.

The 30-year-old has 14 goals in 39 Championship appearances this term, and will be looking to add to that tally against Tony Pulis’ team.
