Two sides in very different form clash at Villa Park when Aston Villa host Fulham on Saturday. Alex McLeish admits Aston Villa remain some way off securing their Premier League status despite being eight points clear of the drop zone. The midlands outfit are winless in five, taking just three points from a possible 15, while their form at Villa Park has been poor, with no success on home soil in their last seven attempts. The club’s last triumph in front of their own fans came at the start of November, while they are the joint-second lowest scorers at home in the top flight. Fulham will be brimming with confidence as they go in search of their fourth consecutive Premier League victory. After suffering a 3-0 defeat to league leaders Manchester City on February 4, the Cottagers followed up narrow wins over Stoke and QPR with a 5-0 win over Wolves in their last match. On the flip side, Martin Jol’s men have only won twice on their travels this season, scoring just eight goals in 13 matches - the worst record in the division.
• Aston Villa have won none of their last seven league matches at Villa Park, losing five. If they don't win this match they will equal their worst ever run without a win at home in the top flight set in 1921.
• Martin Jol's side have yet to lose a match in which they opened the scoring this season (W7, D3).
