FA Youth Cup: Fifth round B6 date with Blackburn confirmed

Villa host Blackburn Rovers in the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup at Villa Park.

The match will take place on Monday February 1, kick-off is 7pm.

Ben Petty will be in charge of the claret and blue side, which could feature the likes of Easah Suliman, Callum O'Hare and Andre Green, who have all impressed at U18 and U21 level this season.

The young lions ran out 5-1 winners at Crystal Palace last time out - Kelsey Mooney, Green and Jake Humphries on target while O'Hare netted a brace.

We boast a good record in the competition, having reached the final in 2010 and the semi-final in 2011.

As well as winning it in 2002, we were also runners-up in 2004.

This fixture means our U21 match with Fulham will be moved - we'll update in due course.
