Remembering greats

There will be a minute's applause for our former captain Ian Ross prior to kick-off, as well as England great Gordon Banks.

Head to your seat in time as we remember two icons of football.

The players will also be wearing black armbands.

Get in early

Please arrive at the match as EARLY as possible on Saturday.

With big crowd that includes Villa Park first timers and fans arriving close to kick-off, lots of people present will be unfamiliar with navigation around the stadium, so don't leave it until the final minutes to start heading to your seat.
