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.”
