Aston Villa fans are eager to see Jonathan Kodjia start the play off final against Derby County.
Dean Smith has opted not to start Kodjia for Villa in either of the play off games so far.
Both Albert Adomah and Andre Green were preferred to Kodjia for Villa against West Bromwich Albion in the semi-final, but neither massively impressed.
Villa only scored one goal from open play in their two games against West Brom.
And claret and blues fans feel that they will threaten Derby more if Kodjia is brought into their starting line-up.

I wouldn’t start either Green or Adomah - just not good enough, I’m afraid. It has to be Kodjia.
I would also start Kortney in place of Taylor.
I’m not in the least bit nervous - we are going to win. #utv
Id start Kodjia on the RW at Wembley and put him up against Ashley Cole. Neither Green or Adomah have done enough recently for me. #avfc— Jamese9930 (@jamese9930) May 18, 2019
Kodjia has to play in the final. Simple as. Don't want to hear any nonsense about him not tracking back.— CJ (@avfc_chez) May 15, 2019
Would be tempted to start Kodjia on the right instead of Green/Adomah. Both have an erratic end product… at least Kodjia is erratic in a good way! #avfc— Rob Jones (@UpTheAstonVilla) May 15, 2019
I’d start kodjia over green imo— Chè (@chehollender_) May 16, 2019
start kodjia on the wing for the final me thinks, adomah n green haven’t played too well :/— chlo (@chloeavfc_) May 16, 2019
The Ivorian is a major threat to defences on his day, but Smith is blessed with options going forward.
Villa and Derby meet in the play off final on Monday at Wembley.
