Reserves latest

Aston Villa have heaped the pressure back on our reserves in the race for the title in the Premier Reserve League South.

A goal nine minutes from time by Jonathan Hogg clinched a key 2-1 win for the leaders against second-placed Fulham on Monday night.

That took Villa to 33 points with one game remaining while we're still chasing in third place with 25 points and three games left.

It means we have to win all three of those fixtures - away games at Stoke, Chelsea and Portsmouth - to keep our faint title hopes alive.

We start with a trip to Nantwich Town to face Stoke on Wednesday night (April 22, 7pm) before facing Chelsea at Brentford on Monday, April 27 (7pm) and then Pompey at Havant & Waterlooville FC on Monday, May 4 (2.30pm).

However, it could be all over by next Monday as Villa will take the title if they beat West Brom.
