Sports Mole previews tomorrow's encounter between Premier League strugglers Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers.

A victory for Aston Villa tomorrow evening will all but secure their status as a Premier League team for another season.

Alex McLeish's side are currently 15th in the Premier League table, with five points separating themselves and the relegation zone.

Wins have been hard to come by for Villa though, having not won in the league in their last six attempts.

Stephen Warnock and Ciaran Clark are injury doubts for the home side, while centre-back James Collins has been ruled out with a groin complaint.

The three points are arguably even more important to visiting Bolton Wanderers, who are currently 19th and four points from safety.

However, Owen Coyle's team can boast a game in hand over Villa, and the majority of their relegation rivals.

Chung-Yong Lee has returned to training with Wanderers, but the match has come to soon for the Korean winger.

Current form:

Bolton: WWWLLD

Possible lineups:

Villa: Given; Warnock, Cuellar, Baker, Hutton; Herd, Ireland, Albrighton; N'Zogbia, Weimann, Agbonlahor

Bolton: Bogdan; Ricketts, Wheater, Knight, Steinsson; Petrov, Reo-Coker, Ream, Eagles, Miyachi; Davies

Sports Mole says: 1-1
