Storylines

Aston VIlla: It's crunch time. Villa has the worst defense in the league with 56 goals conceded, but Sheffield has a bottom-five attack in the league. Because of Sheffield's inconsistent attack, this could be one of those games that saves Villa's season as long as they can limit mistakes at the back. They need a win here or the pressure will mount.

Sheffield United: This team's goal at the beginning of the season was survival, and they have already accomplished that. Now it's about qualifying for a European competition, and it's in well reach., To do it though, they have to pick up something from a game like this. Expect Sheffield to be reserved in defense, double teaming when needed and looking to bag a goal on a set piece or on the counter. If they have any hopes of qualifying for Europe, they probably need to win this one to keep pace.

Prediction

Villa starts the match off on a positive not, but Sheffield claws back and gets a draw that doesn't do much for either. Pick: Aston Villa 1, Sheffield United 1
