Match Day: Fulham vs. Aston Villa

As luck would have it, Villa’s aim for eight straight features us away to the Cottagers and potentially missing two of our brightest lights. I don’t know why, but when things are going well, it sort of always seems that someone important gets injured. Which isn’t to say that Villa can’t win without Jack Grealish and/or Albert Adomah.

Match Day: Aston Villa vs. Burton Albion

The struggling Brewers visit Villa Park today sitting bottom of the table on the heels of three straight losses. Steve Bruce said it all in his presser: “It’s pointless going away and getting a result at Sheffield United if we can’t get the right result against Burton. We are in a good place at the moment. Let’s make sure we stay there.”

Match Day: Nottingham Forest vs. Aston Villa

Our magnificent FA Cup run is over, but I don’t think Steve Bruce was wrong to stay focused on the league. The Forest match is more important than extra games in a competition we’re not going to win. If we’ve weathered a bit of a storm and found ourselves coming out stronger on the other side, Villa are in a good spot to make a run at it over the final 20. And that’s all that counts.
