Villa v Burton: Five reasons to be here for our next home encounter

Be here as we host Burton Albion in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 3rd February – there's plenty of reasons to attend!

We're on fire at the moment, having recorded four successive Championship victories either side of New Year, and there's a real buzz around Villa Park at the moment.

Here's five reasons to get yourself to the Burton match as we eye our latest three points...

1) Too hot to handle

In the last five league matches, we've scored 10 and conceded just once to take the maximum haul of 15 points.

And eight of those goals have come at home – five against Bristol City and three against Barnsley.

Don't miss the chance to see the likes of free-scoring Scott Hogan, Conor Hourihane and Robert Snodgrass in full flow.


2) Brewers leaking goals

Burton have conceded 12 in their four league games in 2018 so far, meaning our attackers will be licking their lips at the prospect of goals.

The Brewers shifted six goals in their match against Fulham the other week – with Villa Park now their next away destination.

So with us in fine goalscoring form and our opposition struggling, it could be an entertaining afternoon if you're a Villan.

3) Bargain buy

Tickets for the Burton Albion game are priced at just £20 to £33 for adults and £15 to £20 for concessions.

U21s can attend for between £10 to £17 and U16s from £5 to £10.

Family packages are available at £45 to £55 (two adults and two U16s).

Tickets are on general sale.

4) Auto drive

Our recent form has propelled us back into the automatic promotion frame, and we now sit just a point off second-placed Derby County.

And by the time the Burton fixture concludes, it's possible we could leapfrog them.

Derby face Brentford at home, and a win for ourselves coupled with anything less than three points for the Rams will see us jump into the top two.

5) Fortress

We've only lost once at Villa Park in our last 16 league matches, and just once this campaign to date.

In line with that record, attendances are on the rise – with our following home fixture against Birmingham City already nearing a sell-out.

And our home form will be crucial as we also welcome promotion challengers Preston, Wolves, Cardiff, Leeds and Derby to Villa Park throughout the remainder of the season.

Be here and continue to make our home a fortress!
