Good afternoon and welcome to Villa Park for today's Sky Bet Championship game between Aston Villa and Norwich City.
The Canaries have been given a hand elsewhere, with Barnsley scoring a last minute leveller against Sheffield Wednesday.
That puts the onus firmly on City to close the gap to the top six this afternoon. Can they do it? Where are you tuning in from today?
Just over five minutes until kick-off. Anyone bold enough for a prediction?
Russell Martin leads out the Canaries at Villa Park!
City go into their pre-match huddle, with kick-off moments away.
Norwich set to shoot from left to right as we look at it in this first half...
And it will be the visitors who get us underway through Howson.
1 - City make their way forward in the opening seconds before Pritchard is unable to keep the ball in. Out for a goal-kick to Villa.
2 - Early sighter for Jerome as his tenacity wins the ball against all odds. He shoots speculatively, sending wide. Bit of intent from the Canaries early doors.
3 - Positive start this. Johnstone puts into the stands as he races to clear a ball outside his area. City throw.
3 - Cleared away for another throw, on the right.
4 - A minute of applause now for a young Villa fan who sadly passed away recently, with both sets of fans getting involved.
5 - Murphy hooks forward but City can't make anything of it. Pinto heads away a cross from the right before conceding a free-kick for hauling down Hourihane.
6 - Lansbury flights in. McGovern decisive as he moves to claim then sets City going quickly, with the away side winning a throw inside Villa territory.
7 - Jacob Murphy in discomfort here following a tackle. Hogan meets a cross from the right but heads firmly over.
8 - Good tackle from Whittaker to nick the ball away from the charging Adomah, albeit at the expense of a corner.
8 - Played short. Adomah shoots. Blocked. Free-kick then given City's way.
10 - Loose touch from Pritchard. Villa throw midway inside City's half but the Canaries come away with it.
11 - Unlucky. Very close as Pritchard threads in Jerome who does superbly to move away from a number of challenges before a low shot flicks wide for a corner.
11 - Cleared away for another.
12 - Cleared once more. Jerome harries to win a throw.
12 - Dorrans crosses but beyond everyone. Howson shows endeavour to charge down a clearance, with the ball flying out for a Villa throw by the corner-flag.
13 - Pritchard lets fly from distance. Just off-target. It's been a good start for Alan Irvine's men so far.
14 - Whittaker stretches to make a cross. Can only send behind for a goal-kick.
15 - Pinto flicks away an Adomah cross as far as Hourihane who volleys over.
16 - Bennett reads the game well to intercept an Adomah pass through to Hogan after Murphy mislaid a pass in midfield.
17 - Kodjia spins and shoots from distance. Dribbles well wide.
18 - Tettey down injured after being caught inside the Villa half. Dorrans puts the ball out so he can get treatment.
20 - Tettey back on his feet. Villa kick the ball back to McGovern so we can restart.
21 - Jerome held on halfway. City free-kick.
22 - Johnstone out of his area to head away a thumped Tettey pass. Almost bounced over him.
