Before that, they had gone on a three-game winning run to boost their hopes of survival.

They can still crawl their way out of the bottom three with two games left to play as they sit just one point behind Leeds.

Villa, however, are in decent form heading into this game, having lost just one of their last five – a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.
