It remains to be seen whether this Aston Villa team is able to secure a spot in the Championship play-offs this season.
Villa are currently 10th in the Championship, six points off the top six.
Ten wins, 14 draws and seven defeats – that is how Villa have performed this season, with a collection of 44 points leaving them in a decent-enough position.
Who are the best away fans in the Championship? Pl>ymaker FC’s Thogden gives his top 10 in the video below…
Villa have one of the best first XIs in the Championship, but have only been victorious in one of their last seven league matches, which is not exactly terrific form.
The Villa fans are extremely demanding, but it would be fair to say that many want head coach Dean Smith to be given time to make his mark, even if the club are unable to secure a return to the Premier League for next season.
Smith became Villa’s head coach last October and boasts a record of seven wins, eight draws and five defeats from his 20 games in charge.

Needs next season to build his own team. At least we can’t say it’s boring watching Villa anymore.
