Looks like Lawro is hedging his bets after predicting a Villa win v Fulham last week. The BBC pundit has said a score draw this weekend away to Middlesbrough.
'I'm sorry to say, Boro have gone. At 9.50pm last Monday I would have thought there was feeling of resignation felt by the club that they were doomed to relegation. Against Villa it's likely they will be weakened, with striker Afonso Alves out while there are doubts over defender David Wheater.
Villa are all over the place at the moment but I think they will get something from this match.'
He predicts 1-1.
Mystic Mug says 3-1 to Villa.
