The Aston Villa XI to beat Leeds at Villa Park

Aston Villa will look to move closer to the Championship play-off places when they host in-form Leeds United at Villa Park on Thursday night.

Steve Bruce’s side have moved to within six points of the top six following successive one-goal wins against Queens Park Rangers and Burton Albion respectively, with Ross McCormack scoring the winner in a below-par home performance against the latter club to push them up to 10th.

Bruce will want to see a more accomplished attacking showing against United as the club look to pick up another victory and preserve their unbeaten run at Villa Park this season.

They will face a tough task in picking up the three points against Garry Monk’s men, who are five places and seven points better off than their Midlands opponents – having won three straight matches themselves.
