Aston Villa's Vlaar expecting tough relegation fight

Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar has warned the club are in for a hard slog if they are to stay in the Premier League this season, Sky Sports has reported.

Villa are currently 12th in the table but a run of only two wins in their last 10 league games means there’s just four points between Paul Lambert’s side and the bottom three. Vlaar believes it is highly competitive between the sides at the bottom end of the table and wants Villa to show their true worth.


“It will stay really close together for a few weeks,” Vlaar said. “You see that anybody can beat anybody else. We have to make sure we don't really get in trouble and go below the relegation line.


“I've said before I think we shouldn't be in trouble this year but we have to get results and we have to show every game what we are capable of because otherwise we can get dragged into it.”


Villa’s last game ended in a goalless draw away to Cardiff and they next play Newcastle on Sunday. The Magpies go into the game three places and nine points better off than the Villans, with the first meeting between the sides this season, at Villa Park, ending in a 2-1 away win.
