The Sky Bet Championship is in full swing and we are set for another weekend of high octane action.

Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa face off against bitter rivals Wolves at Molinuex on Saturday, and they’ll be looking to make it five wins from five.

Fans will be expecting their side to emerge from the game with three points to take back to Villa Park.

Villa will surely be contending for the top six spots this season, fancy the Villans to get promoted? Betway have Villa at 5/2 to get back into the Premier League, while this review of Betway has more information from bonuses to deposit options.

Jonathan Kodjia’s return from injury has restored optimism of a promotion push, but fans remain wary that one injury to their star man and they are in real trouble once more.

Who could replace the Ivorian should he be struck down with injury once more?

Surely it’s time for Bruce and Tony Xia to turn to Scotland, and Rangers’ Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos.

The 21-year-old only joined the Gers from HJK in Finland in the summer, but has already smashed an impressive six league goals.

His form is attracting the attentions of teams in England, and he could be the perfect man to operate alongside Kodjia in attack.

Massive doubts remain over big-money signing Scott Hogan, who has seriously struggled since moving from Brentford in January, and the need for another striker was evident in Kodjia’s absence.

Young and extremely talented with massive sell-on potential, Morelos could be the dream signing for the club, although Rangers will surely demands a sizeable fee for the former Colombian U20 international.

Whether owner Dr Tony Xia stumps up the cash remains to be seen, but Morelos would certainly be a wonderful signing for Villa, and would definitely provide a huge boost to their promotion aspirations.

Villa fans, what do you make of Morelos? Would you like to see him at your club? Have your say below…
