Aston Villa prepare to entertain Bolton Wanderers at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, having won 41 and lost only 16 of the 76 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Villa Park was less than a year ago, in December 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Premier League match.
