Tim Sherwood has recently spoken on Sky Sports’ The Debate and has predicted which team he thinks is going to win the Championship playoffs.
Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa have all sealed their playoff spots, leaving just Derby County, Middlesbrough and Bristol City to battle it out for the final one.
Sherwood spoke, saying: “I’ll go Villa for the play-offs. My old club and I’d love to see them back in the Premier League.
“There are some big clubs there fighting it out and can’t tell you the rivalry between Villa and West Brom is huge.
“Those two games are going to huge football matches.”
Former, Bristol City, Fulham, Torquay, Reading, Ipswich, Hull and Brighton player turned Sky Sports pundit Liam Rosenior agreed that Villa are who he reckons will go up.
He said: “The team with the most momentum normally push and I can’t look past Aston Villa.
“Jack Grealish has come back from injury and they had won ten in a row up to the Leeds game. They have been absolutely outstanding.
“I feel for Leeds and I’ve been there with Brighton. When you miss out on that top two, it’s difficult from a physiological point of view.
“They have such a young squad at Leeds but they still have a chance.”
According to the bookies, Aston Villa are 2/1 joint-favourites with Leeds United to win the all important promotion at Wembley Stadium on the 25th of May.
