Steve Bruce's Villans welcome Nottingham to Villa Park eyeing a return to the form that saw them down Barnsley 3-0 at Oakwell last weekend. Their midweek EFL Cup loss brought to and end a six-match unbeaten run but it should be noted that Bruce made a raft of changes for that clash and intimated after the game that the competition was not going to distract him from his primary goal of returning Villa to the Premier League.
“We are all disappointed to have gone out of the cup. But we all know what my remit is," the former Manchester United defender told reporters.
“We all know we have a huge week. That is why I left out the 11 players who were at Barnsley, left them alone.“My job is to prepare them all week now for the weekend and the week we have coming up before the next international break. It’s a big week coming up.
“We have three games next week and it is all to play for. We know where we have got to be, we have got to be mounting a challenge for promotion.”
Villa face Forest, Burton Albion and Bolton Wanderers in the space of eight days and will be determined to narrow the five point gap that separates them and the promotion play-off places during that time.
And they'll be confident of doing just that as their home form has been solid with two wins and three draws earned in five games at Villa Park. Add to that the fact that Forest have lost three of their last four in the Championship and the hosts surely look the better bet.
