Aston Villa vs Newcastle Match Preview
Aston Villa host Newcastle tonight and both teams will be fighting to stay out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.
It looks as if it will be a close match with bookies giving the same odds of 9/5 on both teams; the chances of a draw have been set at 5/2.
Recently Villa has been on terrible form and hasn’t won any of its last six league games, the team also lost out in the Capital One Cup and FA Cup to lower-league opposition.
Paul Lambert has said that despite the team’s form he “will keep fighting because I’m not brought up to accept it. I handle it in my own way… and I will try everything I can to turn it around.”
Newcastle has lost four of its last five League games and they are the only side in the Premier League which has not yet won away from home.
Manager Alan Pardew, said that the team has to win half of its 15 remaining games which he believes will be just about possible.
It will be a good start for Pardew if Newcastle can win tonight, but its not going to be easy.
