After their first away win in 5 games last time out, Aston Villa will be looking to repeat what they did to QPR when they host Burton Albion at the Villa Park in the 23rd round of the English Championship.
Aston Villa have been struggling since the beginning of the season in the Championship. The team seems to do well at home but their results are not quite as convincing away from home. They have won 3 of their last 5 league games and lost in two. Their last game was against QPR away from home where they won 1-0.
The hosts are sitting in 13th place in the Championship table with 31 points from 7 wins, 10 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 23 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Boss Steve Bruce has hinted at further changes, with Ashley Westwood, Jack Grealish and Jordan Ayew in contention for recalls. Defender Micah Richards, who has not played since mid-October, will not feature again until well into the New Year as he recovers from a knee injury.
The visitors have been struggling since the start of the season as well. Burton Albion have been roaming in and around the relegation area for quite some time. The team have won just one game in their last 5 fixtures and have lost all their last three. They collected 4 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Newcastle United at home where they lost 2-1.
Burton are sitting in the 21th place in the league table with 22 points from 5 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 23 goals and conceded 30 since the start of the season.
Striker Will Miller and midfielders Hamza Choudhury and Lee Williamson will be assessed closer to kick-off. Villa fan Jamie Ward, who has been carrying a hamstring issue, may return to the starting line-up after coming on as a substitute against Newcastle.
