Harrison

Marc Albrighton and Jordan Bowery are in action for Villa's U21 side in tonight's top-of-the-table clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Villa can clinch top spot in Group 2 of the Barclays U21 Premier League with a victory over Spurs tonight.

And Gordon Cowans will have first team duo Albrighton and Bowery in his starting XI to help the push for first place.

Bowery scored his first goal in claret and blue in the reverse fixture against Spurs at White Hart Lane in October.

He also set up Graham Burke's goal in a contest which ended 3-3.

Coach Cowans is also able to call on three other players with first team experience - Derrick Williams, Samir Carruthers and Graham Burke.

Meanwhile, Craig Hill returns in goal after missing out on last week's 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

Watch all the action LIVE on AVTV from 7pm this evening.

VILLA: Hill, Donacien, Williams, Carruthers, Devine, Johnson, Albrighton, Bowery, Drennan, Burke, Stieber. Subs: Barton, Barrett, Webb, Lewis, Grealish.
