Lawro v Mystic Mug Faceoff: Villa v Stoke
Lawro has predicted on BBC Sport a 2-1 win for Villa v Stoke.
He says he was impressed with Shay Given and James Collins (who won and came second in our man of the match vote Click Here ) and thinks the draw will give the Villa a 'lift`"
'Villa's next game after this is Manchester United away - and they won't get anything from that. That's why it is so important they overcome a Stoke side that huffed and puffed their way to victory over a doomed Wolves team on Saturday. Villa's key to success in this fixture is overcoming the physical threat of their opponents - something I fully expect them to do."
Mystic Mug isn`t so sure, he says whilst polishing his balls, that he might have gone for a home win if Lawro hadn`t, but as he is trailing lawro at the moment and flatly refusing to say a loss at home, he`ll stick his neck out with yet another draw! 1-1
