In his weekly column for Sky Sports, the ex-Nottingham Forest midfielder reckons the Villans are good for a 3-0 win over struggling Albion
Villa are on a red-hot run of form having won their last five matches in the Championship, while the Brewers have slumped to the foot of the league following a run of three consecutive losses.
Steve Bruce has seen his side surge up the table, and they now sit just one point behind second-placed Derby County.
A Villa success would be their third win in a row over the Brewers, following September's 4-0 win and last season's 2-1 Boxing Day success.
