In-form Aston Villa play host to bottom-of-the-table Bolton Wanderers in the Championship at Villa Park on Saturday, and Villa fans are in confident mood ahead of the clash.
After winning just one of their opening seven league fixtures this season, Steve Bruce’s men have shown a huge improvement in recent weeks and have now won their last three, including Tuesday night’s 4-0 thrashing of Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.
Now the Midlands outfit welcome Phil Parkinson’s side to Villa Park and they will be the overwhelming favourites to take all three points, with the Trotters yet to taste victory after taking just two points from their opening 10 games.
Aston Villa supporters were quick to have their say ahead of the match via social media, and while some say they are “expecting a comfortable win”, others say they “haven’t felt so confident heading towards a game in ages”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Have to be getting 3 points today. Take the momentum and confidence to the next level, and go into the Intl break on a high! 👏🦁 #UTV
