Aston Villa vs Burton
Aston Villa look to continue their good run of form against the league's bottom club as Burton Albion travel west to Birmingham to face Aston Villa at Villa Park.
The home side have been excellent of late and are big challengers for automatic promotion and currently lie in 3rd place, just 1 point behind Derby in 2nd place. Villa have a strong home record this season picking up 29 points from their 14 games, bettered only by Cardiff City and Wolverhampton.
Villa have also had a good transfer window bringing in Lewis Grabban from Bournemouth and Axel Tuanzebe from Manchester United, both players should strengthen the squad.
Burton, currently propping up the table and favourites for relegation and probably will go down before the season comes to an end. They don't really have the budget like some Championship sides have and it shows. However, weirdly if they do survive they will likely be able to thank their away record as so far they have picked up 16 points from their 14 away games.
The Brewers brought in Darren Bent during the transfer window which was a good bit of business but it remains to be seen if he can fire his new team to safety.
