Sports Mole previews Saturday's Premier League meeting between Hull City and Aston Villa.

Hull City will be looking to maintain their recent impressive form when Aston Villa visit the KC Stadium on Saturday.

Steve Bruce's men go into the game having won their last two Premier League matches, the latest coming against West Ham United last Saturday.

Villa will also be seeking a third successive league win after their dramatic 3-2 victory over Manchester City last weekend.

Bruce will be without Robbie Brady, who has scored three of his team's six league goals this term, after the winger underwent surgery on a hernia earlier this week.

Robert Koren and James Chester will also be out through injury.

Villa boss Paul Lambert will be without striker Christian Benteke due to a hip problem, but Gabriel Agbonlahor should be fit after missing the victory over City.

Ashley Westwood and Craig Gardner are also in contention after recovering from injury.
