Aston Villa prepare to entertain Birmingham City at Villa Park at lunchtime on Sunday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Villans are clearly on top, having won 30 and lost only 14 of the 59 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Villa Park was less than a year ago, in April 2010, the Villans carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premier League match.
