Aston Villa earned another valuable point last Friday as they salvaged a creditable draw against Leeds thanks to Henri Lansbury’s first goal for the club.

This point leaves them in fifth place in the table on thirty-six points, four points above Ipswich who sit just outside the play-off places and seven points adrift of automatic promotion.

Next up for Villa is a home match against Millwall, who are currently sitting in seventeenth place, six points above the relegation zone.

Many people will be expecting Villa to brush Millwall aside on Saturday afternoon, but they have proven over the season that they can be very difficult to break down and defeat.

They are likely to play with XI men behind the ball and hope to hit Villa on the counter, so it is unlikely to be a very high scoring game. Villa will have to be patient and hope that their play-makers don’t have an off day.

Here is our predicted Villa XI for Saturday’s match against Millwall.
