A 5-5 draw, back to back 3-0 away wins. Unbeaten at home. A win in the Second City derby.
It’s fair to say that Villa are flying high right now! The Villans are cruising up the table and setting the pace as the fixtures start to condense and congeal during the build-up to the festive period and the coming of a new year. Will 2019 herald success for Dean Smith and his Aston Villa? Only time will tell, but they must get past West Bromwich Albion first.
Darren Moore’s side are doing well themselves, and will be eyeing a win over Villa in this West Midlands derby fixture - a highlight of this Championship season’s fixture list. Both teams will be eyeing promotion and this matchup may be key to that very goal.
