Blackburn R. face a trip to Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 41 and win only 18 of the 76 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2005, the Villans carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Premiership match.
