Grealish is ‘not certain of recall’

By Graham Hill

VILLA boss Dean Smith says captain Jack Grealish is not guaranteed a recall when his promotion chasing side go to Bolton on Friday.

Ilness-hit Grealish missed Saturday’s win against Bristol City where Villa could have had ‘seven or eight goals’ according to Smith.

It would be a major surprise if Smith did not pick Grealish now that he has recovered.

But he was giving nothing away in terms of his team selection.

Smith explained: “I said after the game it was great we won without Jack.

“He has been an integral part and people were saying it was a one-man team.

“I also said I would much rather have him in my team because he is one of the best players in this league.

“But nobody is guaranteed a place in this team.”
