Welcome to our preview of the Aston Villa versus Cardiff City Premier League fixture. Cardiff come into this game having just completed a morale boosting victory over Swansea in the Welsh derby last time out, and they will fancy their changes of picking up at least a point here against a Villa team who have struggled in recent fixtures. Aston Villa, however, will also fancy their chances of getting their season back on track against the newly promoted Cardiff team.

Team and Selection News

It seems highly likely that Malky Mackay will stick with the starting eleven which won the club’s most important fixture of the season by one goal to nil, which will mean a starting berth for the ever controversial, but dangerous, Craig Bellamy. Aston Villa will possibly recall Gabriel Agbonlahor for this fixture, after the pacey forward was omitted from their starting line-up for the goalless draw with West Ham.
