Brentford v Aston Villa Betting Preview
Stadium: Griffin Park
Channel: Sky Sports
Brentford host Aston Villa on Boxing Day and hope to make it two wins in two after their 2-1 win away to Norwich.
Villa were two goals up against Sheffield United before Mile Jedinak made two costly errors and the game ended in a draw. They are winless in four and in the midst of an injury crisis. The Villains are short of defensive options with Terry and Samba both out. Going forward, they lack a consistent goalscorer. Keinan Davis has been an able deputy but they miss Kodja.
Brentford have lost just two of their last sixteen Championship games and are extremely tough to beat. They are unbeaten in their last ten home games, beating Leeds and Fulham.
Brentford will monitor the fitness of striker Lasse Vibe. Bruce will make changes. Agbonlahor and Onomah could return. Terry and Samba are still absent.
Potential Brentford Starting XI: Bentley; Barbet, Bjelland, Mepham, Yennaris; Woods, Watkins, Sawyers, Canos, Mokotjo; Vibe
Potential Aston Villa Starting XI: Johnstone; Elmohamady, Chester, Jedinak, Taylor; Snodgrass, Whelan, Hourihane, Adomah; Grealish, Davis
Brentford 5/4, Draw 13/5, Aston Villa 21/10
- Brentford to win – 5/4
