Our prediction for this Championship match:
Aston Villa are running down a blind alley ahead of Saturday’s football game against Wolverhampton. The Villans are on a nine-game winless run in the Championship at the moment and, no doubt, they head into the match with the lack of confidence. Steve Clarke’s troops suffered a 2-0 loss to Preston in their last league fixture and it is more than obvious that the team struggle in front of goal. Their next rivals Wolverhampton head into the match following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Wigan Athletic and Norwich City and they are desperate to return to winning ways as well. Both sides are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s football match, but Wolverhampton are more of a team than Aston Villa and we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in the Villa Park clash. A man to watch in the away team will be former Benfica man Joao Teixeira.
