Bizarrely quite excited about this match, even though it's only a friendly and we're only a week into pre-season training!

Looking forward to seeing how we line-up in formation and personnel.

Obviously we're missing the likes of Given, Dunne, Makoun and Guzan but the rest of the team should be available.

Would love to see the following line-up

.................Seigrist

Lowton.Collins.Clark.Lichaj

...........Herd.El Ahmadi

Albrighton.Holmann.N'Zogbia

...................Bent

Totally expecting lots of changes throughout the game.

Chuffed it's live on AVTV too as it's going to piss down tomorrow afternoon!!!

Nothing like a new season and more importantly a new manager to renew that optimism.

I believe Siegrist is at the Olympics. So I'd go

.................Marshall

Lowton.Collins.Clark.Lichaj

...........Delph .El Ahmadi

N'Zogbia---Ireland --- .Holman

...................Bent

I'd like Delph to get a run to see if he can finally start to deliver on the promise under a new manager, new style of play etc.

Would even be tempted to drop Ireland a little deeper and play three box to box midfielders with Zog and Holman pushed right on.

Will be tuning in to watch this...was hoping for at least one more new name before this game. Expect Holman to feature as well, be interesting to see where Lambert plays him.

Would have loved to see Guzan keeping the goal, btw. Hopefully his ready for action asap. Wont bother to put up a team, as I guess most of the available team will get some form of run-out today.

The pitch at Burton is looking fabulous

Yep. we have a pretty nice stadium here too for a lower league outfit.

Hopefully the weather holds out, it's lovely and sunny here right now. Shame I'm busy so I can't come and watch.

Come on Villa, let's start off with a win.

Looking forward to this. Will be nice to see a few of the new/young players get a run out. I'm already pretty positive about this season, shame i couldn't say the same thing this time last season.

Presumably lining up as a 4-4-2?

...............Marshall

Hutton.Lowton.Clark.Stevens

......El Ahmadi.Johnson

Carruthers............N'Zogbia

...........Bent.Weimann

I expect VT to already be in meltdown at the inclusion of Hutton!
