Aston Villa have been given a massive injury boost as Alan Hutton looks set to return to training.

Hutton has been out of action for a number of weeks and now looks ready to play his part in the final weeks of the Championship season.

Villa are pushing for promotion between now and the end of the season and Hutton was playing a big part before his injury.

The Scottish fullback has been an integral part of Steve Bruce’s backline and will be a massive boost ahead of the play-offs.

Villa are looking to secure promotion back to the Premier League and look set to finish in a play-off position, as Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham battle for the automatic places.
