TWO of the Championship’s unbeaten sides come face-to-face tonight.

Aston Villa host Brentford in what looks to be a tantalising clash on paper, with the visitors sitting just one place above Steve Bruce’s side in fourth.

Both sides boast identical records in the league so far, winning two and drawing one.

A draw looks the most likely outcome between these two evenly-matched sides and the best odds for a stalemate are 5/2 with Bet365.

Elsewhere, Norwich City will hope to pick up their first win of the season when they host Preston North End at Carrow Road.

The Canaries are sitting perilously in 20th place and are only above the relegation zone on goal difference.


Daniel Farke’s side can however be encouraged by the early season form of winger Onel Hernandez, who has scored twice already this season.

The German winger is likely to be Norwich’s main goal threat against Preston and can be backed to score anytime at 16/5 with Betfair.

Reading are in desperate need of points having lost their first three games of the season.

Paul Clement’s side are down in 23rd place in the table and are massive underdogs for their trip to unbeaten Blackburn Rovers.

If you fancy the Royals to pull off a surprise win and in convincing fashion, they can be backed to win by 2 goals at 20/1 with Skybet.
