Aston Villa face a trip to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Villans will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2010, with Aston Villa inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Rovers in a League Cup match.
