Villa picked up another three vital points at the weekend as they defeated Nottingham Forest 2-1 at Villa Park on Saturday evening.

This win lifts them up to 9th in the table on 13 points, just 2 points of the play-off places and 7 away from automatic qualification. This isn’t a bad position considering the poor start that they had to the campaign. In fact, they are now 6 league games unbeaten.

Games come thick and fast in the Championship and Villa have the chance to move into a play-off place on Tuesday evening when they travel to the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday evening to face Burton Albion.

Burton have had a mixed start to the season and they currently sit in 19th place with 9 points from their opening 9 matches. This has consisted of 2 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses.

Here is our predicted XI for tomorrow’s game against Burton Albion:
