Aston Villa secured a huge win on Wednesday night, beating Rotherham 2-1 despite being down to ten men.
The Villans came back from being one down to lead 2-1, securing a massive three points in South Yorkshire.
With five games to go, every single match is now vital for Villa if they are to secure a playoff spot.
Here, we’ll predict Villa’s last five games, as they look to make a push for the playoffs.
Bristol City (H)
Villa take on Bristol City on Saturday, in what could be a crucial game for both sides.
The Robins have been mounting a playoff push of their own as of late, and could be a big test for Villa.
Former Villa man Andi Weimann got a hat-trick for Lee Johnson’s side against Sheffield United and he will want to do well against his former employees.
It could be a tough test for Villa, but the Robins did falter against Norwich City and could struggle against Dean Smith’s side.
Prediction: Villa 2-1 Bristol City
Bolton Wanderers (A)
Bolton’s off the field problems have been very clear to see…
But it hasn’t been that much better on it.
This should be an easy win for Villa, and could even relegate the Trotters back to League One.
PREDICTION: Bolton 0-3 Villa
Despite their heroic showing in the FA Cup, Millwall’s league form has been… mixed.
The Lions need a win and are in real danger of being relegated. This will be a tough game for Villa, but they should win out.
PREDICTIONS: VILLA 2-1 Millwall
Leeds United (A)
Leeds away is a massive game for Villa.
Marcelo Biesla’s side are properly gunning for promotion, and will desperately want to avoid defeat against Villa.
However, Villa are really on a roll, and could really disrupt any potential promotion bid for Leeds.
PREDICTION: LEEds 1-1 Villa
Norwich City (H)
It’s very likely that Norwich’s season could be all but over when they travel to Villa.
The Canaries have been the top side in the Championship this season, and will be a massive test for Villa.
However, they could be on the beach by this point, and with their terrible record at Villa Park, this could be Dean Smith’s day.
