Watch Villa U21 clash against Sunderland LIVE on AVTV tonight
Gordon Cowans' team are looking to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to the Black Cats at the Academy of Light earlier this month.
Tonight's game at the Greene King Stadium kicks off at 7pm.
Villa could move up to third in Group 2 of the Barclays U21 Premier League with a maximum haul this evening.
The young guns were boosted by a win over PSV Eindhoven in the NextGen Series last week when Graham Burke and Michael Drennan were on target.
The boys in claret and blue have had mixed fortunes in the new U21 league so far with a pair of wins over Stoke City, defeats to Sunderland and Newcastle and a succession of draws.
Villa and Sunderland met in the U18 league on Saturday with the North East side winning 3-1 at the Academy of Light, despite Charlie Ward giving the visitors the lead.
As well as the live video stream, our Villa Live interactive text service will also be running tonight.
