Led to a stunning victory over Derby County by the returning (and newly minted captain) Jack Grealish, Aston Villa will make a short hop across Birmingham to play Birmingham City in the Second City derby.
Usually ferocious, the derby will likely be more fiercely contested as both teams feature heavily in the Championship play-off picture. A victory for Birmingham will see them likely damn Villa’s hopes for the season, while a Villa win will give their play-off chances a much-needed shot in the arm and send them four points behind 6th placed Derby.
