Probably the most anticipated game this Saturday in the EFL Championship is Fulham against Aston Villa. Both sides are in top form challenging for promotion. This is a massive six-pointer for the teams and nerves are to be expected.

The hosts currently have 3 points advantage over 7th placed Preston and have little room for mistakes. Cottagers are overall in good form but had a slip up last game. The team visited Bolton in search of 3 points but took home just 1. Fulham went ahead early on with Targett’s goal. The team continued to play decently well but Le Fondre’s goal in the 61st minute decided that the points will be shared.

Aston Villa are really in top form. The team was fighting for top 6 and after a series of great performances The Villans have climbed all the way up to 2nd place. The team has plenty of experience and class and finally found the needed blend. Last game they took important 3 points yet again this time in The Second City Derby. 2-0 victory with 2 goals in the second half was more than enough for the 3 points. Adomah and later Hourihane scored a cracker giving the important points.
