Aston Villa face a trip to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Wednesday evening, 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 April 2007, with Aston Villa inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the Rovers in a Premiership match.
