Villa v Ipswich: Five reasons to be at Villa Park on Saturday

Be here as we host Ipswich Town in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday – there's plenty of reasons to attend!

It's our second home match at Villa Park in the space of five days, and we can finish of a perfect week with a result against Mick McCarthy's side.

Here's five reasons to be here for the visit of Ipswich...

1) Back on track

After the disappointment of the Sheffield Wednesday result earlier this month, we've bounced back brilliantly so far.

We came from behind to beat QPR 2-1 at Loftus Road last Saturday, before recording the same scoreline against Sunderland on Tuesday to move up to fourth in the Championship.

The results saw us back on track both on the road and at home, and we can now take nine points from a possible nine with a win over Ipswich.


2) 300,000 and up!

A crowd of just over 31,500 would see us pass the 300,000 attendance mark for the season so far.

That's after 10 league games, which would give us an average of 30,000 per home match – among the best home crowds in the whole of England.

Be here and play your part in creating a fantastic atmosphere!

3) Sit with Dr Tony!

Our Chairman has been back in B6 for a week now, and Ipswich Town will be his last match on his current stopover.

And you could sit alongside him, thanks to our #SittingWithXia competition.

4) Breaking clear

Ipswich Town are just three points adrift of the Championship play-off places, while we're three points inside the top six.

And victory would put us nine points clear of Mick McCarthy's men – further consolidating our place in the promotion race.

With games against Leeds United, Derby County, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough and Bristol City – all clubs in and around us – coming up in the next six weeks, it's vitally important we begin this run against fellow challengers with a win.
