Blackpool VS Aston Villa match analysis

Just a single point separates these two sides in the bottom half of the table but whilst Villa's trend appears to be generally upward, Blackpool's is most definitely in the other direction. The Seasiders are only a couple of points above the relegation places and have won just one of their last nine games in all competitions, losing all of the other eight. Holloway strengthened during the transfer window with the addition of James Beattie and others but scoring goals isn't really their problem; it's keeping the door shut at the other end of the park that's letting them down. Their attacking football is refreshing but they're susceptible to the counter and that could play into Villa's hands. With the signing of Bent, competition for places up front is fiercer and the end product has been an upturn in results. Prior to the defeat at Old Trafford, Villa took five points from the previous three away fixtures plus they won at Sheffield United in the FA Cup. Villa are desperate for points themselves whilst a defeat for Blackpool could theoretically see them drop into the bottom three; a scenario which could well play out although the Tangerines' goal difference is superior to most of the sides below them. I think Villa will win 2-1. Bet Away win is a good choice.
