Aston Villa v Reading Preview

K Updated
Outward Bound? Darren Bent

One solitary point from their last three games and third from bottom with only Reading and QPR below them Aston Villa are Evens at Ladbrokes to pull off what should be a routine home victory.

Villa may have only the one point to show for their three game efforts but they have played Arsenal, Man United and Man City to get it and so they have had a very tough run of fixtures.

The main question on every one's lips regarding Villa is why the manager is giving Darren Bent such a hard time.

The hitman has been out of favour since being stripped of the captaincy and Lambert has preferred Benteke up front of late but with goals hard to come by could this be the right time for Bent to make an appearance?

Bent has scored over 100 Premier league goals and would be first choice striker on a lot of teamsheets. I'm pretty sure that Liverpool would be more than happy to have him on loan if todays newspaper reports have any substance to them and he would be an ideal addition to the reds sqaud.

The Reading defence is leaking goals badly and that is something that needs to be rectified in January if the Royals are going to make a concerted attempt at staying up. Losing a 2-1 lead to Wigan at the weekend shows the porous nature of the rearguard and Villa will be sure to take advantage in this game.

Villa's strikeforce of Christian Benteke, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann is one that many top flight clubs would be envious of and Weimann looks a pretty decent player and Villa have come up trumps with that one.

With Bent left out of the starting squad in the last game we should be betting on Benteke or Weimann to score first and Villa to win.

Villa to win is evens at Ladbrokes, a £10 bet returns £20.

Villa to win and Weimann to score is a very tempting 3/1 at Ladbrokes. A £10 bet returns £40
