Smith could make Villa a Kod army

By Graham Hill

VILLA boss Dean Smith admits he has a selection problem to deal with up front as he prepares to take on Bristol City.

The game will have a huge say in who eventually goes on to make the Play-offs.

And Smith is seeing some of his players hit form at exactly the right time.

On the downside, Villa will be without suspended defender Tyrone Mings who was sent off against Rotherham on Wednesday.

But he also saw Jonathan Kodjia come on and cause problems in the second half.

Kodjia is former Bristol City player and left them to sign for Villa two seasons ago.

Now Smith is debating whether or not to include him in the team to face Lee JOhnson’s side in front of a sold-out Villa Park.

Smith told the club’s official TV channel: “His performance for 45 minutes was excellent. It was just what we wanted, and needed.“Him and Tammy Abraham kept the ball in their half well and he got his goal. There was plenty of effort from him and it’s given me a problem.”
