Well, after a mixed run of predictions so far this season, Mark Lawrenson was spot on last week predicted 2-0 to Villa v Portsmouth.

This week he is once again backing Villa to win, this time by 2 goals to 1 v Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

The bbc pundit said:

‘Villa, after that opening-day home defeat by Wigan, have started to pick up results without ever looking like they are playing well, which is a very good sign for them. They set up well when they are away from home too, and are always dangerous on the break.’

BBC preview:

Interesting stat that our 12 points from the first five games is our best start for a decade, since the 1998/99 season.

Mystic Mug says no stroll in the park but if Villa are on their game we’ll get a 2-0 win.

Hopefully Murph will be along later with his ever excellent (no pressure there then Murph) preview.
