PL2 latest: Aston Villa v Rovers

31 October 2016

Live updates from the Banks's Stadium, Walsall as Rovers Under-23s take on Aston Villa...

Rovers have named a familiar looking line-up for tonight's Premier League 2 clash with Aston Villa.

There's just Scott Wharton, Ryan Nyambe and Connor Mahoney with any first team experience as Damien Johnson makes one change from the side that lost narrowly away at West Bromwich Albion seven days ago as Connor Thomson replaces Joe Rankin-Costello who drops to the bench.  

In contrast, the hosts have several first team players in action this evening at the Banks's Stadium as Gabby Agbonlahor, Jack Grealish and Aaron Tshibola all start for Villa.

ASTON VILLA: Sarkic, Hale, Leggett, O'Hare, Suliman (c), Clark, Green, Tshibola, Hepburn-Murphy, Grealish, Agbonlahor.

Subs: Blackett-Taylor, Johansson (GK), Davis, Doyle-Hayes, Linley.

ROVERS: Fisher, Nyambe, Doyle, Travis, Platt, Wharton (c), Mahoney, Tomlinson, Mansell, Hardcastle, Thomson.

Subs: Magloire, Powell (GK), Rankin-Costello, Howarth, Rittenberg.
