Here are Will Rook‘s football tips for West Brom v Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

Aston Villa to win {ODDS:417882147:8/5}

Aston Villa came from behind to beat West Brom 2-1 at home in the first leg of this tie – their 11th victory in 13 matches.

The Baggies have lost back-to-back games and had Dwight Gayle sent off for two bookings on Saturday, meaning they will be without him and Hal Robson-Kanu for the second leg.

Both teams to score {ODDS:417882152:3/5}

BTTS had landed in five of West Brom’s last six matches, while they have only failed to score once in their last 19 games at The Hawthorns (against second-placed Sheffield United).

Villa have only kept clean sheets against relegated Bolton and fourth-bottom Millwall in their last nine, so there should be goals at both ends on Tuesday.

Tammy Abraham to score {ODDS:419617590:11/8}

Abraham returned from injury on Saturday to net the winner against West Brom, his 26th goal of the season in all competitions.

The Chelsea loanee has bagged five in his last six appearances and should cause the Baggies’ defence a few more problems on Tuesday.

John McGinn to be carded

McGinn has racked up 14 yellow cards in the Championship this season – the equal second-most in the division.

The Scot ranked 14th in the division for attempted tackles over the season with 133 – more than any other Villa player – and could resort to some dark arts to get his team over the line.

Mason Holgate to be carded

Holgate picked up his seventh booking of the season for a late challenge on McGinn at Villa Park on Saturday.

He struggled to cope with Anwar El Ghazi’s pace when playing at full back in the first half and could be given another tough 90 minutes by the Villa winger.
