Dean Smith at the home of the championship's in-form team this afternoon.
Frank Lampard's Derby County – who defeated Villa's fierce rivals Birmingham City last time out.
In addition to Blues, the Rams have dismissed contests Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion and they'll be looking to Smith's misery away from Villa Park.
Bolton Wanderers and Jack Chester get the goals.
Villa was unable to get the better of Derby in two meetings last season, losing the first game 2-0 at Pride Park before a 1-1 draw at Villa Park in April.
Smith has visited Pride Park this season and will be hoping to avenge a 3-1 defeat with Brentford club in September.
