Aston Villa team news ahead of Brentford

Ahead of Saturday’s game, Dean Smith would speak to the press on Friday.

When doing so, Smith would provide an injury update on his side, and it was fairly mixed news.

Ollie Watkins – Villa’s top scorer last term – has missed the opening two games of this season due to injury.

However, Smith confirmed on Friday that if the striker can get through training today, then he will be available for selection:

However, Smith also stated that Leon Bailey, Bertrand Traore, Morgan Sanson and Keinan Davies remain sidelined:
