Blackburn Aston Villa Odds : Kean to take advantage of Villa injury crisis

Blackburn will be desperately seeking all three points when they play host to Aston Villa at Ewood Park on Saturday as bookmakers make Steve Kean’s side the 7/5 favourites to take the spoils against Alex McLeish’s stuttering Villa side.

Steve Kean’s side have battled against the tide all season but look to have given themselves a chance of Premier League survival, however three defeats in their last four games means they still occupy a spot in the bottom three by virtue of a worse goal difference than QPR in 17th.

To make matters worse for Rovers they were forced to sell defensive colossus Chris Samba before the end of the Russian transfer window. This was after the Congolese international refused to play for the club having attempted to engineer a move away from Ewood Park during the January transfer window.

Fans of the club also plan another protest against the owners ahead of the game against Villa, describing it as their biggest demonstration yet.

Despite these problems, they have a chance not only to possibly move out of the relegation zone once more but also pull a Villa side desperately struggling for form in to the relegation mix up.

Alex McLeish hasn’t enjoyed the happiest of times since his summer switch from Birmingham, and after a poor run which has seen them win just two of their last ten games, they now sit uncomfortably above the five relegation threatened teams that are separated by just two points.

While they enjoy a seven point gap from 16th placed Wolves, a defeat this weekend and they will lurch further towards the wrong end of the table and into the relegation scrap.

To make matters worse for the Villains, lead striker Darren Bent could be out for the rest of the season after picking up an ankle injury in their 0-0 draw at Wigan on Saturday, while partner-in-crime Robbie Keane has returned to the MLS after completing his loan spell with the club.

The pressure really is on both teams this weekend and is should be a cracking contest at Ewood Park.
