Aston Villa should start Yannick Bolasie v Millwall

Aston Villa travel to Millwall on Saturday for a Championship clash, as life after Steve Bruce gets underway.

The Midlands giants sacked 57-year-old Bruce this week and the club’s under-23s boss Kevin MacDonald will temporarily take the reigns as interim manager at the weekend.

Villa may be in the middle of searching for a new manager, but need to try give themselves a lift before the international break and it’s crucial they keep picking up points.

They are currently 13th in the Championship standings and only find themselves two points off the play-offs.

Yannick Bolasie, 29, is certainly somebody that should be promoted to the starting XI and handed his first start since he joined Villa on loan from Everton in the summer window.

The pacy winger has featured in five games so far from Villa, but they all came off the bench and manager Bruce wasn’t really exploiting his true quality by starting him.

He’s still given supporters a glimpse of his potential by netting twice in his five cameo appearances from the bench and has the ability to tear defences to shreds at Championship level.
