Dean Smith says his players have been in “good form” this week leading up to tonight’s Sheffield United clash.
The game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, pits ninth against third under the lights at Villa Park.
It should be quite the occasion, with over 34k in B6 to witness it.
The lads went through their final preparations on Thursday and Smith is happy with what he’s seen.
He told Club TV: “They’re in good form. They’ve trained really well this week, which is good.
“We did a recovery session on Sunday. We had Monday off. Then we’ve trained Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
“The lads are looking forward to the game now.”
