Town Aim to bring Down Villans

The league takes a back seat as Town go looking to kill a giant.
An added bonus would be rubbing it into Paul Lambert who was less than generous when his Norwich team were beating the Blues but Villa are nowhere near as ready as the Canaries ever were.

Vital Quotes:

Places are up for grabs as some fringe players get a chance due to others being cup-tied.
Manager Mick McCarthy told the pre-match presser: "They get one opportunity to make a good first impression and they have to make sure they take it.

"I sometimes feel for them in this situation because if you go into a game alongside nine of the established ones then it can be easier, but if you`re going in alongside a number that haven`t been playing it`s tough.

"You can always put your shift in though and make a real good first impression. How you go about your job is important to me.

"I`ve been saying to them, if you go on as a sub, make a difference. Don`t just sit around and have a face like a slapped backside.

"They know that if we don`t win and I don`t get a good performance then the hook comes and they`re out the team again."

Aston Villa Team News:

Stephen Henderson and Bradley Orr are not allowed to play due to their parent clubs not allowing them to become cup-tied.
Scott Loach gets another go in goal while Elliott Hewitt is likely to start at right back.
Michael Chopra will replace DJ Campbell up front, although McCarthy has plenty of options, especially with two new loanees.

Player to watch: Scott Loach

Ipswich Town Team News:

Lambert is likely to play a young side

Player to watch: Weimann
