Aston Villa v Wolves: Big-match guide ahead of heavyweight Sky Bet Championship clash

sbobet thai Aston Villa and Wolves meet in a heavyweight Sky Bet Championship clash at Villa Park on Saturday.

With Villa aiming for automatic promotion and Wolves hoping to take a step closer to the title, we look at the form guide, talking points and stats going into this potentially defining game, which is live on Sky Sports Football...

League table
Two positions and 10 points separate these two sides heading into the weekend. Wolves are six points clear of Cardiff in top spot while Villa are third.

Form guide
Aston Villa were second a couple of weeks ago but a defeat at Fulham and a draw against Preston saw them drop four points off Cardiff. Steve Bruce's side still have eight wins from their last 10 games. sbobet thai

Wolves, meanwhile, recovered from their biggest blip of the season to thump Leeds 3-0 in midweek. Nuno's men had dropped points in three games in a row for the first time this campaign to briefly open the door to the chasing pack.

Wolves: WWDDLW

The talking point
Wolves' ownership and their links with super-agent Jorge Mendes have come under the microscope again in recent days, particularly after a string of tweets from Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani following their midweek defeat to the Championship leaders.

Wolves responded with a short statement on Friday, saying: "We are very clear on FA and EFL regulations and always comply with them explicitly.

"We welcome any form of communication with the EFL to reiterate our position, and we fully anticipate the release of a further EFL statement in support of Wolves and the club's operations to bring a prompt resolution to this matter."

Villa boss Bruce was less concerned, adding: "I'm only interested in how we beat them as a team. They've got Champions League players and with them in the Championship it's going to be difficult for all of us.

"Let the authorities deal with it, the vast majority of fans want us to beat them. How they've assembled their team is of no interest to us."

The defining words, however, probably came from Neil Warnock. The manager of Wolves' nearest challengers Cardiff said: "All this talk of advantages - let them sign who they want. It doesn't bother me if they sign Neymar. I think it's great, I wish we had all contacts like they have. Good luck to them because they've been in the doldrums for so long." sbobet thai
