Aston Villa fans have reacted with dismay to Steve Bruce’s line-up for the crucial Championship clash against Fulham on Saturday afternoon.

Fans think that Bruce has put out a negative side that will be playing for a draw.

The team news was announced on the official Aston Villa Twitter site ahead of the 3pm kick-off:

It’s a huge game for both sides with massive significance for promotion, with Aston Villa currently in the automatic spots in second with 59 points.

Fulham are in fifth spot seven points behind and Bruce will be aware that three points away from home today would be a huge step towards getting his die back in the top flight.

Villa are on an incredible run of seven wins in a row in the Championship and fans will be hoping they can make it eight from eight on Saturday.

However, they’re not convinced Bruce has put out the team to do it.

Here is a selection of the best reactions from Aston Villa fans ahead of the 3pm kick-off:

If Villa win today they can make it 10/10 with two more games in the Championship this month.

They host Preston North End on Tuesday night and travel to Sheffield Wednesday the following Saturday.
