Tottenham v Villa pre-match show: Stars get set for Spurs trip

AVTV goes behind the scenes at White Hart Lane for this week's pre-match show ahead of Villa's trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

Jack Woodward presents the show from various locations at the venue for Sunday's big match, including the away dressing room, the tunnel, pitchside and the area where the away fans will be sitting.

There are a number of star guests on the show including Joe Bennett, Brett Holman, Marc Albrighton and Gary Gardner.

Bennett admits he is relishing the away clash against Spurs.

The full-back says there is a strong belief in the Villa squad that they can rise to the occasion.

Holman praises Tottenham's big effort to defeat Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend.

The Aussie midfielder discusses recent Spurs signing Moussa Dembele - a player he came up against in Holland's Eredivisie.

Albrighton insists Villa will go to north London full of confidence.

He pinpoints Spurs trio Gareth Bale, Jermain Defoe and Aaron Lennon as major threats.

Gardner is currently on the sidelines with a cruciate ligament injury but will be cheering his team-mates on from the stands.

The midfielder has detected a strong spirit in the camp going into the match.

He also gives us an update on his recovery from injury.

Development coach and Villa legend Gordon Cowans reminisces about beating a Spurs team featuring the likes of Ricky Villa and Ossie Ardiles.

Cowans describes White Hart Lane as one of the great traditional football venues after overseeing a 3-3 draw there with Villa's U21 team on Monday night.

We close the show with some great goals against Spurs, including efforts from Martin Laursen and Dion Dublin.
