Three to go, five points off second. Impossible dream? Perhaps. But with a win on our visit to Ipswich today, it would remain in the realm of possibility
Midweek, or close enough, and Villa find themselves safely locked in the promotion lottery following back-to-back 1-0 victories over Cardiff and Leeds. Accomplished with three games to go, it might have been a bit dicier than we would’ve liked.
Four games left, and tonight Leeds come to visit. One more win and we’re in the playoffs. So let’s go get it.
It was scrappy. It was lucky (maybe). It was vital. Aston Villa hosted Cardiff City Tuesday night in front of Prince William, and a Jack Grealish wonder goal saw Villa take home all three points. Oh, and John Carew was there, too.
So. Cardiff. Win, and we draw within four (though the Bluebirds have a game in hand). A true six-pointer with only four to play after. Could make for a fantastic finish.
