Aston Villa confirmed line-up v Huddersfield: 32-year-old axed in two changes
By Amir Mir
Aston Villa have made two changes to their starting XI that takes on Huddersfield in a Championship clash on Tuesday night.
Steve Bruce’s side travels to Yorkshire looking to secure four wins on the bounce and record their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the process.
Following their 2-0 win over Rotherham at the weekend, Bruce has added James Bree and Jordan Amavi into the side with the injured Birkir Bjarnason and 32-year-old Alan Hutton axed.
Here is the club’s official Twitter account announcing the team news:

Villa will be hoping their star striker Jonathan Kodjia can add to his 12 goal tally this season after netting in his previous two games.
His goals against former club Bristol City and the Millers have helped the Midlands club move away from the relegation zone and into mid-table security.
Despite the chances of Villa getting relegated or earning promotion being very slim, they still have the opportunity to have their say in this season’s promotion race.
After traveling to take on third-placed Huddersfield on Tuesday, they will host sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday at Villa Park, knowing wins against those sides could be significant for those teams around them.
