Aston Villa v Sheffield United Predictions

Aston Villa had started to build momentum and although last week’s setback at Derby was  their first loss in six, they drew two matches before that against leeds United and Millwall respectively. They remain in the playoff hunt but automatic promotion is beginning to  look beyond them, given the ten point gap to second-placed Cardiff City.

Sheffield United initially took the Championship by storm after coming up from League One but results have dried up. Still, they probably wouldn’t have dreamed of being in the playoff mix at the halfway point in  the season. The Blades need to stop the rot and arrive without a win in their last five matches.

Steve Bruce has his defence well organised but could be accused of being overly cautious. A lot of Villa’s  games have been slow burners and with Sheff Utd not banging them in like they were a few weeks back, this could be a low-scoring game. The tip is for both teams to cancel eachother out in a 1-1 draw.
