O'Neill ready to overhaul Villa midfield

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is ready to make major midfield changes for their clash with Bolton Wanderers.

"On Monday night we played a reserve game - Patrik Berger, Isaiah Osbourne and Moustapha Salifou all played - and in terms of our first-team squad, so did Wayne Routledge," said O'Neill.

"Everybody is in contention. It is a pity we didn't have a reserve game last week because it would have done Salifou, Osbourne, Berger and Routledge the world of good.

"All came through Monday, the attitude was terrific and now we will see what we do."
