Ticket Information: Aston Villa

1 October 2018
The last two seasons have seen thrilling draws at Villa Park, with last season seeing the Lilywhites put in one of their best away performances of the season; Tom Barkhuizen giving them the lead until a controversial late penalty denied them all three points.
 
This time around, both sides will feel that their recent displays have not resulted in the points that their performances have merited and will be looking for the three points to kick-on their campaigns.
 
For Alex Neil, the game comes after the blow of losing another player for the season, after the news of Josh Harrop’s injury sustained in the build-up to the side’s second goal against West Bromwich Albion.
 
But the squad will look to go again and try and pick up the result for their stricken team-mate, in their penultimate fixture before the second international break of the season.
