Wolves vs Aston Villa
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14th January, 2016
Kick off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Molineux, Wolverhampton.

Wolves might be having a very average season in the Championship but they will be full of confidence after beating Premier league team Stoke City in the FA Cup. The club come into this game in 16th place and have not won in the league since before Christmas.

The problem persisting the team has been the amount of draws they have had- 4 in their last ten games. They also have the second to worst home record in the Championship where from a possible 36 points they have picked up just 12.

Aston Villa have been knocked out of the FA Cup in predictable fashion when they lost to Tottenham Hotspur and in their last league game they lost to Cardiff 1-0. This stopped a 3 game unbeaten streak where the club seemed to be finding their feet and so this game could tell us a lot at where the club are.

Wolves vs Aston Villa: Head to Head Stats

Aston Villa has a good recent record over Wolves where they have gone undefeated for the last three encounters. But there is one huge stat that stares at us this is that Villa have not lost to Wolves at Molineux since 1978.

Wolves vs Aston Villa: Prediction

Whilst it’s true that Aston Villa have lost two games in a row in all competitions the club were on a high just beforehand and Steve Bruce the manager will want to ignite the fire in his teams belly once again. Wolves have such a poor record at home that it is difficult to side with them. The odds are short but the best bet here looks like Aston Villa on the double chance.
