<b>Aston Villa v Wigan, Saturday 3pm</b> <br/>
Aston Villa are still undefeated this season in the league, although with only one victory and five draws they have been far from entertaining. Roberto Martinez visits Villa Park for the first time since he turned down the opportunity to manage the Midlands side and will hope to maintain Wigan's unbeaten record at the ground in their six league meetings. Villa's chances of stopping them will be improved by the return of Emile Heskey and Darren Bent from injuries. Jermaine Jenas could also make his debut for the club.
<br/><br/><b>Recent results:</b> Aston Villa 1-1 Wigan (07/05/2011, PL), Wigan 1-2 Aston Villa (25/01/2011, PL)
<br/><br/><b>One to watch:</b> <b>Charles N'Zogbia</b>, comes up against his old club for the first time since his summer transfer and so far he has failed to replicate the kind of star performances for Aston Villa that he achieved for Wigan. The stage is set therefore for him to rediscover his form from last season and put his former employers to the sword.
