Aston Villa earned another 3 vital points on Tuesday evening as they put four goals past Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium.

This comprehensive win moved Villa up to 8th in the table, just two points off of a coveted play-off position and 5 points away from an automatic promotion spot. They are now the form team in the Championship, having been unbeaten in their last 7 matches – amassing a total of 15 points.

They have a great chance on Saturday afternoon to pick up another 3 valuable points as they take on a struggling Bolton side that has only managed two draws in their opening ten matches (both of these coming in the first two games of the season). In these ten games, they have scored just 4 goals and have conceded 21.

Villa will see this as a great opportunity to move into the top 6 for the first time this season.

Here is our predicted Villa XI for Saturday’s match against Bolton.
