Newcastle United v Aston Villa Preview, Premiership, Sunday 23rd February 2014

Newcastle United welcome Aston Villa in this Sunday afternoon game from St James Park and with both teams having a poor run of form a win could be vital to getting their seasons back on track.

Newcastle currently sit 9th in the table and could potentially move up to 8th with a win, where as Aston Villa who sit 12th in the league table can move up into the top half of the table with a victory on sunday afternoon.

Both teams will see this game as an opportunity to get points on the board, but if Aston Villa lose they could be found fighting a relegation battle along with many other teams as the campaign is tighter than ever this season. Alan Padrew will be after a big performance from his players after suffering some heavy defeats recently, one being against their arch rivals Sunderland.

Newcastle United Team News:

Tiote could be set to return along with argentine Coloccini, both will face late fitness tests. Ryan Taylor remains injured with a knee injury. Bigirimana is also nursing an injury but should be back for next weeks fixture. Newcastle will also be without Remy who is suspended for the game against Aston Villa.

Aston Villa Team News:

Kozak, Okore and N’zogbia are all out for Aston villa with long term injuries. Aston villa have no suspensions for the game against Newcastle.

Newcastle United v Aston Villa Match Betting Odds Market

Newcastle United are the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price of 23/20 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) which does look a bit on the short side considering they are without their top goalscorer and have lost their last three games on the bounce.

The Draw has happened twice in the last five meetings between these two clubs and with every point from here on in crucial for both clubs Premiership survival this match could very well end up all square on sunday afternoon and at a current best price of 12/5 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) this looks well worth getting on as your main saver bet here.

Aston Villa have been quite unlucky in their last few matches on the road and  for me they have just as good a chance of winning this game on sunday afternoon as their hosts and at a current best price of 29/10 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) this does look the clear value in this game for me.

Newcastle United v Aston Villa Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Newcastle will want to bounce back from there previous three results to get their season back on track, however I believe missing Remy the clubs current top scorer will be a massive blow for them come Sunday afternoon.

Newcastle do have enough quality in their squad to see off their opposition as Aston Villa have had a hard time of it of late struggling to pick up points both home and away and I believe Newcastle United will also have a point to prove here i this game with both teams being in such poor form at the moment the home advantage could prove crucial here and Aston Villa look likely to struggle unless they get off to a good early start in this game.
