Welcome to our Newcastle United vs Aston Villa preview, predictions and head to head analysis. Newcastle are in 15th place in the league. Six points from the last 2 matches have pulled them out of the relegation zone, but they are still just 2 points, or potentially 1 loss away from drifting back there. They need to keep winning to ensure safety. Aston Villa look resigned to life in the Championship next season. Their season seems to be headed in only one direction – down. However all is not lost and there have been teams that have played well the second half of the season and survived. Could this match against fellow strugglers be the turning point?
