MATCH PREVIEW

Plenty to play for at Villa Park with Aston Villa just three points above the relegation zone and Tottenham eager to strengthen their hold on fourth place. Villa's preparations have been less than smooth with three players disciplined for their part in a nightclub fracas in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
LAWRO'S PREDICTION

"Spurs knowing Harry Redknapp will still be at the club next year is almost like putting your pair of slippers back on that you have lost for the last couple of days."

    Read Lawro's full prediction and score

Spurs' week has been rather better with the news that Harry Redknapp wouldn't be leaving after all, followed by a 4-1 win at Bolton.

Redknapp's got a great record against Villa in recent seasons, with an 11-match unbeaten run against them in the Premier League, stretching back to his days in charge of Portsmouth, who lost away to Villa six years ago.

He'll have been delighted with the response of his players at the Reebok the other night as they look for some late season momentum to see them over the line.

These are worrying times for Villa supporters with their team perilously close to the drop zone and the last home game, a 2-1 defeat to Bolton, ended with a torrent of abuse directed towards manager Alex McLeish. He's trying to avoid a second relegation in 12 months having taken neighbours Birmnigham City down only last year.

Villa's current form indicators all point in the wrong direction and it may yet be the failings of others below them that saves their place in the league, rather than anything they achieve themselves over the next two games.

One of the big problems, among many, for them has been the number of drawn games. Sixteen so far, which is just one short of their own Premier League record set five years ago and shared with the Newcastle team of 2003-4.

    “These are worrying times for Villa supporters with their team perilously close to the drop zone”

With two matches left to play, Aston Villa will have to win both of their remaining games if they are to avoid ending with their lowest ever points tally in the Premier League era.

Perhaps the most damning statistic of Aston Villa's miserable season is their home record. If they fail to win today it will set a new club record low of just four home wins. Until now the lowest win total was five in 1890, but don't forget they only played 11 at home back then because it was a 12-team league.

So this season's effort is really the worst in the club's history whatever happens against Spurs.
