At a glance

Aston Villa travel to Derby County in their final game before the latest international break on Saturday.

The Rams are currently on a six-match unbeaten run and sit fifth in the Sky Bet Championship table.

A win for the claret and blues, however, would see them jump back into the top half.


Team news

Birkir Bjarnason is fit to face Derby County after shaking off a groin problem.

Bjarnason came off in the first half at QPR a fortnight ago and missed the subsequent Bolton clash.

Head Coach Dean Smith is otherwise happy with the overall injury situation, with only Keinan Davis unavailable to him at present.

The boss also confirmed Jack Grealish will play as normal, despite being one booking away from suspension ahead of the Birmingham City fixture later this month.

Dean Smith

"It'll be a tough challenge. 

"I've already been there with Brentford this year and they were very destructive after going behind.

"It showed how good some of their players are, but there's also going to be opportunities for us to exploit their weaknesses.

"Frank Lampard has done well so far. He went in and realised what he needed and has some good, young loan players to supplement the experienced ones they had already.

"They certainly play with a lot of energy and have had a good start.

"I fully respect what they're doing but I'm in no way fearful of them. We've got some good players of our own who'll look forward to facing Derby."



We've sold-our our away allocation yet again, with more than 3,100 Villans making the trip to Derby.
