Aston Villa seemed fortunate to nick a TV slot in their last F.A Cup game against Leicester and how now grabbed another in a row. The home clash with West Bromwich Albion will be shown live on television on BBC1 on the 7th of March at 5:30pm local time.

Villa sunk Leicester City in their first game following the departure of Paul Lambert and will look to make a serious run for the silverware against West Bromwich Albion. This of course comes only a few days after they try to beat Baggies in an attempt to survive the drop from the Premier League.

The Baggies tore apart Sam Allardyce's high flying Hammers in the last round, scoring four goals to West Ham's naught. The Quarter Final derby will also be the second Midlands game in a row for Villa, who faced Leicester in the round previous.

Villa last played West Bromwich at home last January, where a stellar duel took place, resulting in Villa stealing a 4-3 victory over their local rivals.

Aston Villa will also play West Brom at home four days before the cup tie in a Premier League match-up. This means that Aston Villa can grab two massive boosts in the same week by getting over their local rivals. Revenge could be quite sweet come March.
