Will Chester or Grealish be back for this, even on bench?

---------------Kalinic
Elmo, Elphick, Mings, Hutton/Hause
Green, Whelan, McGinn, Adamoah
-----------------Hourihane
-----------------Abraham

No Jedinak, Taylor or Kodjia in the squad please Deano

Seems unlikely either are fit.

Deano was saying Grealish is chipping away at him to play though.

The jinx will end 2-0 Villa, Mings to get his first & Tammy from the spit, that will do.

Mings already has his first.

Ha ha, yes, errr his first away!!!

Brentford have given us issues but that was largely thanks to Woods controlling the midfield. Without him, a midfield masterclass from Whelan will see us win.

Thanks legion ! for putting this thread up already gives some time to think and hear team news but I can give some insight. And will give initial prediction. (Maybe a revised one to come?!)

Also save me delving into the "why do we have such a struggle playing Brentford" thread

As we know villa haven't won away this year and since boxing day .

I've been reading up on reports and  Brentford away to forest and they dominated on match .
Also seeing highlights they certainly had a few chances .
Big on possession and 21 shots. 7 on target.
And a pk conceded was unfairly given (missed by the great grabban )
They still lost the match.
But have been on a 10 game unbeaten run.

I do think they have a chance to be got at having conceded conceded 2 goals plus in each of their last 3 matches.

Also the keeper Bentley (despite the pk save) was doing a good impression of Henderson or Nyland and was very poor at commanding and decision making

Brentford have 4 defeats in 15 home matches overall
And all their defeats have been by a one goal margin .

Villa have won 4 of 15 away matches
Twice by 3 goal margins (both under Smith)

My prediction is a 1 goal margin villa win. According to season so far any loss by Brentford at home they experience is only by 1

So rather than the 1-0 i could see a 2--1 or 3-2
A 4-3 wouldn't be a total surprise !!

Tammy to score all the goals .

Last year we started with Jedinak and Whelan. Shudders.

A few people on Twitter including somebody I trust from here have said that Grealish has said he won't be back until next month now.

Was it at Brentford at this stage a couple of years ago (post Bruce's first transfer window) that we got well and truly tonked? Seem to remember Bruce going with three at the back despite all his new midfield signings and they humiliated us.

I think another draw for us 1-1 but would like three points.

It is probably a case of my heart ruling my head but Villa to win 2-1. Brentford had a wobble after Smith left them but have done quite well recently.

Is this a 'must win' game I keep hearing about?

Incidentally, I'm working in Ealing and thinking I might go along on the day, pay at the turnstile and sit quietly in among the Brentford fans, anyone else planning on similar?
