Preston lost five on the spin and seven of last nine in all competitions. The attacking line did well in spite of such horrendous results. The Lions bagged two goals in five of last six outings, including the Saturday’s 2-3 loss to new table-toppers West Bromwich Albion.

Alex Neil’s job is well rumoured to be on the line. Can the Scottish manager inspire his men to rebound on Tuesday evening against Aston Villa?

Aston Villa vs Preston: Head-to-head

Aston Villa dominated this match-up over the course of history.

The Lions won 23, drew 3 and lost only 6 of 32 matches against Preston at Villa Park.

Aston Villa also took four points form two H2H games against the Lilywhites in the previous term of the Championship.

All but one of past six H2H games saw fewer than three goals scored.

Aston Villa vs Preston: Prediction

The low-scoring head to head trend could likely be ended here given Preston’s dreadful form. The visitors obviously have by far the weakest defensive record in the league with 21 goals conceded in 1’0 matches so far.

It will be the music to the ears of Jonathan Kodjia, Tammy Abraham and Birkir Bjarnason who lead Villa’s line. Bjarnason was the one who notched the equalizer in a 1-1 draw to Bristol City at Ashton Gate at the weekend.

Kodjia and Abraham make an exciting attacking duo and they will no doubts have plenty of room to create past the struggling defense of Preston’s here. The home win is thus well worth backing at the 1.85 odds, while you can also back the hosts to notch two or more goals at 1.90.

Aston Villa vs Preston: Bet Tips

  • Aston Villa to win @ 1.85 (17/20)
  • Aston Villa Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.90 (9/10).
