Villa pin survival hopes on forgotten striker Heskey

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish is set to start Emile Heskey against Bolton Wanderers tonight.

Under-pressure McLeish has little option but to turn to the former England forward as Gabby Agbonlahor is likely to be ruled out with a sore shoulder.

McLeish said: "Emile has come right into the thinking. He's admired by all his team-mates. They love him and love it when he plays.

"They know he works his socks off for the cause. He can definitely do a bit of damage."
