Leeds to come unstuck at Villa Park

339

Table-topping Leeds United face one of their trickiest games of the season on Sunday when they visit an Aston Villa side that have been revitalised since Dean Smith became manager just over two months ago.

Aston Villa to win by 1 goal @ 57/20

Villa, who have only lost one of their 11 clashes at Villa Park this term, are unbeaten in their last seven matches and have scored 21 goals in that time.

Leeds have won their last five games since being hammered 4-1 at West Brom in early November, but in contrast to Villa their fine run has been built on defensive solidity – United have only conceded one goal in their winning sequence and scored seven times.

Their last four triumphs have all been by one-goal margins.

Swansea to win from behind @ 31/4

Meanwhile, Hull City will be keen to keep their mini-revival going when they host Swansea City.

Nigel Adkins’ side have moved out of the relegation zone by taking 15 points from their last eight games after they had started the campaign by losing nine of their first 14 matches.

Back-to-back victories against Brentford and Sheffield Wednesday have lifted the Swans back into play-off contention and they can make it three victories in a row by beating the Tigers at 7/4.

Reading to keep a clean sheet @ 57/20

Middlesbrough’s season is in danger of coming off the rails and their promotion push could be dealt another blow at Reading.

Tony Pulis’ team wasted a great chance to reach the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup when they were beaten by League One side Burton Albion at home on Tuesday and they are 7/2 to lose again this weekend.

Boro have slipped to sixth after picking up just two points from their last four games and have struggled for goals all term – they have only found the net 24 times in their first 22 Championship fixtures.
