It’s a Midlands derby tonight as out of sorts Aston Villa take on great rivals Birmingham in the Capital One Cup.
Both side have made contrasting starts to the season with Tim Sherwood’s side are fourth from bottom are losing at the weekend to another city rival, West Bromwich Albion.
The 2015 FA Cup finalists have won just once in the league and will hope for a morale boosting win against their high-flying neighbours.
Birmingham know Villa’s pain all too well. The club have endured a difficult couple of years but hopes are high this season following a positive start to the campaign.
Gary Rowett’s side are currently 7th in the Championship on 12 points, just two points off third spot.
The Blues have won 3 and drawn 3 of their opening 7 games and 12 goals scored are the league’s joint third top goal-scorers.
Tuesday’s meeting between the sides will be the 122nd meeting and with just 3 miles and 10 places between them there is sure to be plenty of tension in Villa Park.
While league points will be the focus of both managers, Sherwood was quick to point out the importance of the game.
“This means an awful lot. It’s not just a normal game,” the former Spurs boss said in the build-up.
Sherwood will once again be without Adama Troare. The former Barcelona winger has been out since he suffered an injury in the 5-3 Capital One Cup victory over Notts County last month and while he is back in light training he won’t be available midweek.
Both sides are likely to makes changes with Idrissa Gueye (hamstring) a doubt for Villa. Birmingham drew with Ipswich 1-1 in their last outing and Rowett could bring in new faces as he prepares for his first Midlands derby.
